The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci (1906)
de Leonardo da Vinci
A fascinating look into the mind of a genius.
One of the very few books where I keep wanting to read more and more and more. Its a small book, only 220 pages or so but something in it which captures my attention often. I was thrilled to get an insight into Da vinci's mind, his drawings, thoughts, his philosophies on art and most important as a human. His Moral precepts for the student of painting is so useful for art students and artists alike.
Everything is precise and yet detailed in his notes. This book is my reference guide. Oh and he comes across as an extremely witty man in his prophecies. Totally enjoyed this one.
The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci are a good representation of the real Da Vinci (opposed to the pseudo- image we've been given via popular culture- i.e., The Da Vinci Code). It's a little disorganized becuase Da Vinci wrote everything backwards (i.e. right to left) and because of the various translations it's undergone.
Here you have the means to find out what a genius was thinking. Helicopters ...... perhaps. City defences. And ideas about the world he lived in. And sketches. It is impossible to summarise this book. You simply have to borrow it from the library and dip into it as the fancy takes you. Love it.

A dazzling array of invention, insight and observation from perhaps the greatest genius of Western civilisation. Towering across time as the painter of the Mona Lisa, forever famous as a sculptor and an inventor, Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest minds of both the Italian Renaissance and Western civilisation. His celebrated notebooks display the astonishing range of his genius. Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and recent in-depth biographies have stimulated renewed interest in Leonardo and his complex and enquiring intelligence. This brand-new selection of sketches, diagrams and writings from the notebooks is a beautiful and varied record of Leonardo's theories and observations, embracing not only art but also architecture, town planning, engineering, naval warfare, music, medicine, mathematics, science and philosophy. Complete with a short biographical essay describing Leonardo's life and achievements, this is the perfect introduction to a mysterious and endlessly fascinating genius.
