Leonardo Da Vinci needs no introduction. An exceptionally curious and intelligent person, an inventor, engineer and a painter par excellence - all rolled into a single persona. In this highly interesting and remarkable biographical work, master biographer Walter Isaacson has tried to explore and analyze various known and unknown aspects of the extraordinary life and personality of Leonardo Da Vinci. His research, presentation and narration are outstanding - and quite entertaining too. Isaacson demystifies a highly complex individual and his eventful life with notable simplicity, ease and intelligence.
This hardcover edition of the book is printed & produced in Italy - and in itself is a work of art. Superior production and print quality makes going through the book a pleasant experience. Many paintings, sketches and photographs are incorporated on the pages of this remarkable biography by an equally remarkable author.
A very highly recommended book to all the admirers and enthusiasts of Fine Arts & Science.
