Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing

On the heels of Walter Isaacson's beloved new biography (Fall 2017), and increased media attention (as 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of the artist's death), this book's appeal will extend beyond the devoted and numerous members of Leonardo's audience to reach a popular one.

The most comprehensive collection of Leonardo da Vinci's drawings provides an intimate look at the mind and hand of the genius.
