I'm not trying to stir controversy, but after looking closely at the Vetruvian Man and other work in this book which assert the Golden Ratio in the human body, it is beyond me how anyone can believe that there was not a Designer behind it. Now whether that Designer used DNA, evolution or created our bodies from the dust is beyond me, but our bodies are a living miracle.
In spite of belief or lack of it, this is an inspirational book from one of the greatest minds of all time.
Don't let this distract you from getting this book however. It's detailed pictures are wonderful considering the orginal size of the works and the translations help with the reading. There's a section for each catagory, such as anatomy and lighting, which really helps if you want to look at certain types of works. The greatness of these pictures will have you looking at each page for hours, just to see all the details.
I would suggest this book for anyone from an art lover to a history fanatic. I use it as a reference book for one of my drawing classes. It's a great buy for anyone and everyone.
