Great book. As a medical student enrolled in a cadaver course, it is amazing that DaVinci was able to find and draw these anatomical structures so beautifully and correctly.
  • Yananoc
This is the fifth time I've bought this...I have one, and give it as presents to art students.
  • Kison

  • Billy Granson
The anatomical drawings by Leonardo are very rich in detail, and the book does very well the organization of this material, facilitating consultation by artists and art students in general. Fans of this extraordinary artist will not be disappointed.

I'm studying the human anatomy nowadays, and what's better than the notes of the great Leonardo? I was very anxious to receive this one.
I really respect and love his work.
