Born back in 1985, the Basic Art Series has evolved into the best-selling art book collection ever published. Painter, inventor, architect, scientist, and engineer: Leonardo da Vinci stands to this day as one of the most accomplished human beings ever to have lived. Whether the smallest arteries of the human heart, exquisite biblical scenes, or far-flung constellations of the universe, explore his insatiable quest for knowledge, invention, and beauty.
“These seductive books have slick production values, excellent illustrations, and smart texts. Each one is a fast-food, high-energy fix on the topic at hand.” – The New York Times Book Review
