Nowhere is the genius of Leonardo da Vinci more evident than in the famous Codex Atlanticus, whose pages preserve his dazzling ideas on subjects ranging from war machines to human anatomy and powered flight. Now, beautifully reproduced in high-quality photographs—and complete with QR codes to access content such as 3-D reconstructions of Leonardo's machines—da Vinci's work emerges with all its peerless force. Easily available apps for iPhone and iPad make this stunning book a multimedia extravaganza worthy of its great subject.
