The award-winning author and illustrator behind Darwin's Voyage of Discovery and Really Remarkable Reptiles turns his attention to the Renaissance man: Leonardo da Vinci.

Leonardo da Vinci was a master of art, architecture, engineering, mathematics and more. Discover his relationship with the natural world, his futuristic inventions and the breadth of his artistic skill in this spellbinding celebration of his genius.

Follow his early years - born to a poor mother and receiving no formal education, it is amazing that an innate fire of curiosity and imagination fuelled this man to achieve extraordinary success and a place amongst history's elite. Learn about his legacy today - the bewitching power of the world's most famous portrait, the Mona Lisa - as well as the influence of his inventions in modern daily life. This gorgeous hardback is filled with Jake Williams' characteristically stylish illustrations.
