Brilliant! A must own for anyone interested in art or anatomy.
This is the future of art catalogues. With the complete drawings from the Royal Library Windsor Castle, the ability to really zoom in to see details, translations of the all texts, and other interactive elements make the price of $13.99 seem a bargain. I own The Metropolitan Museum of Art soft cover catalogue that reproduces a selection of the Windsor Castle collection that was shown in 1984. There are only 8 color reproductions - the rest are in black and white. The cost was $19.95 almost thirty years ago. I also own the 1992 hard cover book "Leonardo Da Vinci, The Anatomy of Man" published by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston with 82 illustrations and 59 of those in color as they proudly point out. Lovely if incomplete book that cost me $40 at the time of the show. I am happy to have both of these on my bookshelf but they pale in comparison to this app. I hope other institutions will follow this example and produce art catalogues for the iPad with this high attention to craft, detail and ease of use. And I will be there as a costumer.

This book takes all the elements of design art and information and presents it in the most engaging way possible. Bravo. Although I don't know if it's just me but the audio on the videos are not working. Ipad3

WOW - just buy it!
This was my first interactive book, and I bought it based on the great reviews, and the chance to own high resolution versions of Leonarno's sketchbooks. I was not dissapointed - it is a stunning work, which really shows the value of interactive media. Can't wait for what the future holds for this technology.

This is why you bought an iPad
Apps like this turn your iPad into something truly special. The complete collection of anotomical drawings of Leonardo da Vinci, in full high resolution retina glory, in your hands? Are you kidding me? This is an incredible collection of science and art, presented in a beautifully designed app. It's more than a book could ever hope to give you, in a package far more personal and accessible than a web site. Don't balk at the price. You'll spend more time with this app, and get far more out of it, than the last 25 .99 cent apps you bought combined. Wow, just wow.

Stunning!
What a tremendous work! The combination of the amazing work by Leonardo da Vinci and modern technology was terrific. The piece helps us to get inside the mind of one of history's greatest artists. What monumental challenges he had to face to be able to create such a record at that time. He had such drive to learn. So sad that the work was not in use in the early days of medicine. His findings were not published till so much later. Thank you.
