NOT actually from the deep waters. Mostly from the shallow waters, or barely related to water.

I'm sorry, if you choose the title "From the Deep Waters" and mention "myth and mystery" in the subtitle, I expect an exploration of oceanic mythology, not a thin excuse for yet another collection of moist Pre-Raphaelite hotties.

Ophelia is not a mythical mystery. She is a character from a play, who drowns. That is not DEEP WATER. Ditto Elaine and the Lady of Shalott, but even moreso because they don't

A coffee table book of pre-raphaelite art inspired by water and water mythology from mermaids and Greek nymphs to the watery death of Hamlet's Ophelia.
