Reviews

The name Leonardo da Vinci likely conjures images of the Mona Lisa or The Last Supper, but one of his greatest legacies are his anatomical drawings, which were astoundingly accurate for his time. . . . The drawings are accompanied by fascinating texts from experts on how Leonardo pioneered the art of medical illustration, including the wonderfully grotesque tales of what it took to learn such anatomical detail. . . . It's a fun art history class.
--Claire Zulkey "Chicago Tribune, on the app "
One of the greatest stories in the history of science.

"Leonardo da Vinci was renowned as an artist at the time of his death, but 400 years passed before his brilliance as a scientist was widely understood. In his final years, he dissected about 30 human cadavers, producing some of the finest anatomical studies ever made, according to Martin Clayton and Ron Philo. From time to time, exhibits of da Vinci's drawings have been mounted, but this book, containing 90 anatomical studies, is the largest published collection to date."
