About the Author

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. Leonardo was and is renowned primarily as a painter. Among his works, the Mona Lisa is the most famous and most parodied portrait and The Last Supper, the most reproduced religious painting of all time, with their fame approached only by Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam. Leonardo's drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also regarded as a cultural icon.

Perhaps I missed a portion of the description, but I expected this to be a nicer, LARGER, hardcover book. It's only about 5" square. The info is okay, but it was not what I expected.

Be aware this this is a small book, and you will not be able to view the paintings in very great detail. However, this is a good book to have when referring to S. da Vinci's art on the go and you don't want to lug around a huge book and it's also nice to have when pressed for space. As it says, it's a complete catalog of S. da Vinci's work and the pictures are quite beautiful, even at such a minute size.
This is a good book for art-aficionados, art-students, those that want to be prepared when going to museums to acclimate themselves with the works, and anything and everything in-between. As previously mentioned, it's a nice book to have when you're on-the-go.

This is a complaint of Amazon's selling page more than the book itself. I had no idea this book was only a few inches small. After receiving it, I went back and scrolled thru the ad and found the size buried way down the page past all the adds, similar items, other items entirely, reviews, etc. The item you are trying to buy needs to be clearly described before all the additional ads, items and other crap on the page. I would not have bought this if the size had been clearly stated at the top of the page.

This was a brand new book I purchased and the binder is falling apart and unglued from the backing. Very terrible product. I can't even enjoy the book because I'm afraid I'll rip it apart.

This is a wonderful book for anyone with an interest in learning more about Leonardo Da Vinci. As mentioned in previous reviews it is perhaps surprisingly small but this shouldn't be seen as a negative, it makes the book all the more intriguing and enjoyable. All of the works of art are presented beautifully & on quality paper, quite often in great detail. You get to see many of the larger paintings by Leonardo very close up, a way you could never see them in a museum and this was something that I thought made this book something special. I would love to see other artists collections shown in such a compact but beautifully detailed way.

This is a good and very BASIC book about Leonardo da Vinci's works. If you want to look for BASIC information for a speech, it has almost all the information that you need. And the pictures make it look more understandable.
Even though it is not a picture collection book, it is useful for those who need information to work with and for those who want to know more about Leonardo da Vinci in a basic way.
Overall it is a good book, with each "hard made material" page and color page, that help us get a clear start in learning about Leonardo da Vinci.
Hope this Help :)

While the art is, of course, amazing and well printed, the book itself is tiny, not much bigger than my hand, and nowhere in the online description is that revealed
