    Get this book!

    I am an art history major and bought this little book on Leonardo because it had many sketches with translations and details of all his known works. It turns out that the author is the founder of the da Vinci museum in Vinci and has a tremendous wealth of knowlege included in this book. Each image in the book is backed up by careful retracing of historical significance and through sketches and comparisons of other artists' works.
