206 magnificent illustrations bring da Vinci's world to designers and crafters of the 21st century! An architect, sculptor, painter, inventor and engineer centuries ahead of his time, Leonardo da Vinci was the archetypical Renaissance Man.
As famous for his paintings of the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper as he was for devising plans for the helicopter, tank and solar power, he also advanced the study of anatomy, astronomy and civil engineering. This multifaceted overview of the celebrated genius' work, presented in both color and black-and-white, includes a splendid selection of his portraits and figures, along with detailed anatomical and scientific drawings from his many notebooks.
The images included are so varied, including paintings as well as famous drawings, such as his Vitruvian Man [see our Vitruvian charm] and many of his machines and animal drawings, including cats, dogs, bears, horses and even crabs!
The CD contains all of the images that are shown in the book along with silhouettes and details from them that are not shown in the book. Both high-resolution images and internet-ready resolution images are included on the CD.
