In a body of work that is perhaps unparalleled in history, Leonardo da Vinci's (1452-1519) sketches and copious notes allow us to peer into the mind of a genius. He was a consummate draftsman and sketch artist who carefully recorded his world and the travels of his mind in mirror-image cursive. A man of unquenchable curiosity spanning an infinite spectrum, he was simultaneously taken with the concepts of grace and geometric structure of the universe.Our cover features Leonardo's scientific observations and theories on the light of the moon relative to the radiance of the sun, recorded in the Codex Leicester. This glimpse into one of history's most celebrated minds reveals how Leonardo shone a light on humanity's potential for greatness.
