Overview

This edition includes the complete notebooks (volume one and two).

Most of what we know about Leonardo da Vinci, we know because of his notebooks. Some 6,000 sheets of notes and drawings survive, perhaps one-fifth of what he actually produced. With an artist's eye and a scientist's curiosity, he recorded in these pages his observations on the movement of water and the formation of rocks, the nature of flight and optics, anatomy, architecture, sculpture, and painting. He jotted down fables, epigrams, and letters and developed his belief in the sublime unity of nature and man. Through his notebooks we can get an insight into Leonardo's thoughts, and his approach to work and life.

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.

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.
