In the LWB introduction for this deck, author Anna Lamberti Bocconi writes: "The myth of the Nymphs demonstrates that only through love can a creature truly come to life, and that without love, there is no soul. It is a special love, more spiritual than carnal, and yet completely immersed in nature and the elements." And while that may be true, this deck exhibits an overwhelmingly carnal feel, with many cards exhibiting half- and completely-naked, well-endowed women (with wings) in pin-up style poses. We've attempted to choose cards in our sample scans that show a variety of tableaus from this deck, but the reality is that this deck is heavily weighted toward young, nubile women sexing it up for the camera (metaphorically speaking). Not that we object to that; the illustrations are indeed lovely to look at. But if you're looking for spiritual depth, this may not be the best deck choice for you.
