Leonardo da Vinci Paperblanks Journal Collection
A true Renaissance man, Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) said, “The noblest pleasure is the job of understanding.” His pursuit of knowledge culminated in his unparalleled genius as a sculptor, painter, scientist and inventor. Lucky for us, he took prolific notes and saved detailed sketches comprising roughly 13,000 pages, the subject matter for this series of Paperblanks journals.
Famous for his paintings, the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Leonardo Da Vinci was equally brilliant in the subjects of science and engineering, exploring topics as diverse as water, light, anatomy and flight. After his death, most of his drawings and notes ended up in museums around the world, from the Louvre to the British Library. The only major scientific work that is privately owned, the Codex Leicester, belongs to Bill Gates.
Now, you can enjoy your own private viewing of Da Vinci’s studies on water motion, sunlight and moonlight. This Paperblanks’ journal collection recreates the genius’ sketches with period detail and functional brilliance.
