Leonardo da Vinci by Zollner -Published by Taschen

  • Dec 5, 2005
Rating:
+5
This rendition is perfect for a class project in the arts,
sciences, medicine or engineering. The work has detailed drawings
of animal anatomy, as well as patent drawings. The quality of
the presentation is comparable to a professional architect or
commercial artist. Each drawing has a considerable explanation
of the origin and artistic context of the rendition. The book
proves that Da Vinci envisioned some of today's inventions
500 or so years before they were commercialized.

The scientist Sigmund Freud said of Leonardo da Vinci:

"Indeed, the great Leonardo remained like a child for the whole
of his life in more than one way; it is said, that all great men
are bound to retain some infantile part. Even as an adult, he
continued to play, and this was another reason why he often
appeared uncanny and incomprehensible to his contemporaries."

The acquisition is well worth the price for serious students
of the arts, sciences, medicine or engineering.
