"If you wish to have a sound knowledge of the forms of subjects begin with the details of them and do not go on to the second step till you have the first well fixed in memory and in practice. And if you do otherwise you will throw away your time, or certainly greatly prolong your studies"
So, if you wish to purchase this book, only for its images, you would do a better deal, purchasing "Leonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings and Drawings" from Taschen. But, if you wish to read his notes on several of his drawings, this is the book to purchase.
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.
