Through informative main text and sidebars, annotated quotes from scholars, and detailed examples of da Vinci's work, readers are introduced to a genius who never went to formal school but invented machines that would not be made for centuries. Leonardo da Vinci is a fascinating historical figure, and his story is sure to inspire young artists.
