Picture Perfect What a wonderful book. I learned so much about da Vinci that I never knew. It was not easy being an artist in Renaissance Italy. This book is well written and easy to read - the length is perfect. High recommended.
Anna Abraham is a very talented writer. I loved this book. Leonardo da Vinci is a captivating subject and Abraham does a high quality job detailing the things that made him great.
If you like art and history this book gives you both in avrry readable fasion.
