Top critical review

I love Denise Linn's decks, and have been looking forward to this one for a long time. I received it today, and was horribly disappointed. The messages are fine, but the artwork is definitely not up to Denise's usual quality. If she had left the majority of the people out of it, the deck would be incredible, but I find that the majority of the cards with the people - especially those with wings - and oddly enough, some of the butterflies, are very poorly done, and come across to me as very amateurish attempts at collage work. The majority of the cards with animals are fine, and to me the art would have been much better enhanced by sticking with that. Or better yet, by mostly letting the views of nature, without additions, stand for themselves, as that art is incredibly beautiful. I will likely keep the deck and use it, strictly for the messages, but I'll see how I feel once I've worked with it a bit. For me, the artwork is difficult to get past.
