Leonardo, Beautiful Dreamer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Famous in his time as a painter, prankster, and philosopher, Leonardo da Vinci was also a musician, sculptor, and engineer for dukes, popes, and kings. What remains of his work-from futuristic designs and scientific inquiry to artwork of ethereal beauty-reveals the ambitious, unpredictable brilliance of a visionary, and a timeless dreamer.

Robert Byrd celebrates this passionate, playful genius in a glowing picture book replete with the richness and imagination of Leonardo's own notebooks. Twenty lavish spreads, including side drawings, supplemental texts, and quotes from Leonardo's writings, highlight distinct periods and make the master's art, jokes, explorations, and inventions wonderfully vivid and accessible. A striking tribute to an irrepressible mind and to the potential within all who are curious.

Review:

"As thorough an exploration of Leonardo's achievements as can be wrought in picture-book format....Byrd's presentation is above all collegial, consistently working to inspire readers rather than to awe them. His twin regards for subject and reader make this offering a winner." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

A renowned author-illustrator celebrates Leonardo da Vinci's passionate, playful genius in this glowing picture book replete with the richness and imagination of Leonardo's own notebooks. Full color.
