The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci

( 21 )

Overview

Throughout his life Leonardo da Vinci carried notebooks in which he scribbled down ideas and opinions as they occurred - personal, domestic, scientific, philosophical, artistic - frequently accompanied by explanatory sketches and diagrams.

Overview

Throughout his life Leonardo da Vinci carried notebooks in which he scribbled down ideas and opinions as they occurred - personal, domestic, scientific, philosophical, artistic - frequently accompanied by explanatory sketches and diagrams. Surviving manuscripts contain drafts of letters, fanciful fables, rough treatises on the art of painting or the power of water, descriptions of the Medici courts, even jokes. The present selection gives coherence to this rich kaleidoscope of ideas. From it emerges the portrait of a true Renaissance man, whose habit of rigorous enquiry, observation, and experiment, grounded on a philosophic system, led him to conceive of the universe as an organized cosmos corresponding to a work of art.

    Not quite as it is described.

    When I bought this, I really wanted something with pictures. But despite the description saying there were none. I wanted to see sketches of concept inventions, but instead I got just an ordinary book.

    I'll read it, but I am not happy with the purchase.

    Amazing...

    These notebooks...both Vol.1 and 2 show the mastermind at his very best. Not only was he an artist...he was a teacher, a visionary, an author, a poet, an architect, and a genius. These books showcase all of his attributes and let us know how amazing he really was.

    Leonardo

    Fascinating. Just to be able to read the work of the most prolific genius ever as well as observe his sketches and drawings is worth the time.

    Nicoletesla- notebook

    Personal quote of the day: enjoy life in all its pleasures and joys, and empathize to its deepest sorrows. Entry: umm first notebook entry. I guess this is just kinda like a diary... you write what is happening in ur life and what ur thinking or feeling. So i guess thi is my daily journa layout: so each day, i put a quote, th an entry, then a daily feeling. Sooo todays daily feeling is.... bored. Its sunday. No wonder.
