A Portrait of Leonardo
I actually could not stop looking at the illustrations in this book. They are so beautifully done and contain so much information it really is hard to look away. They are bright and colourful and contain so much visual humour and intricate details. The passion the author has for his subject is plain to see in the writing and illustrations.
Just like Mozart and Shakespeare before, this book is a wealth of information, written in a way that the readers will love. A definite hit here with us!
