The story of a genius
An incredible and accurate depiction in words and drawings of the most famous architect, artist, and anatomical professional ever to walk the earth. Even for the price of 14$ I could not imagine not having this application after using it. If you have even a small interest in anatomical and historical information, then please buy this app. A note to the creators: Please make an app similar to this one except on Leonardo da Vince's achievements on architectural advancements.

Fantastic - like a museum in your hand
A very engaging book on Leonardo's anatomical studies, but it's hard to just call it a book. Terrific use of interactive elements let you examine the drawings closely and it never comes off as overly gimmicky. Although there are a few parts about Leonardo's other work, such as "the last supper" it is still in the context of how the anatomy guided his drawing. All the famous ones you would expect such as Vitruvean Man are here, but many others I've never seen. Carefully laid out, easy to explore, and takes advantage of the Retima display -- very impressive

It's overwhelming it's so beautiful
I am nearly speechless with how amazed I am at this app. I read a review on a blog and after much thought decided to take a chance on a fourteen dollar app. It is beautifully presented, elegant and thorough. If you an artist and want to study the brush strokes and lines, then it's exceptional. There's lots of information and the 3d interactive anatomy illustrations are brilliantly done. I don't even want to see it all in one sitting because I want to savor it! Seriously, if you are an artist, this is a must have! Only complaint is I really dislike the sounds and can't see where you can turn them off. They are annoying and interrupt the elegance of the book. But it's not a deal breaker. Lovely piece of work.

Abolutely Magnificent!
Ditto to what everybody has said! The high detail and resolution allows maximum zoom yet the image is still crisp and clear. I can actually study his pen, pencil and brush stroke technique!!! MOST EXCELLENT!!!! Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci is my favorite historical figure with maybe the exception of Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni.

The First Essential "Art Book" App
As a passionate lover of "real" art books, I've been skeptical about whether an app would ever come close. Well? "Leonardo da Vinci: Anatomy" has, and it goes further. Featuring ALL 268 pages from the show of at the Royal Collection, London, in super sharp retina display ready resolution, complete with the ability to zoom in, and translate Leonardo's famous "backwards" notations, it's a true treasure trove for art lovers, art students, as well as those in medical fields. It's a benchmark for other art book/new media publishers, and I look forward to seeing what this infant medium of art apps will produce going forward. It's so exceedingly well done that it's probably a more complete experience than an attendee to the actual show will get, which makes probably missing it in person a lot easier to take, while providing a lasting reference and ongoing learning experience.

The creators did a wonderful job of bringing together the history, artistry, and life of Leonardo Da Vinci. The images are stunning. The videos with the experts view and insight is a nice bonus- (would have loved more). The interactive pages will definitely have one paying closer attention to the details of Da Vinci's illustrations of anatomy. As an artist and a scientist myself - exploring this book makes me smile because it shows the origins of what is medical illustration today. To be able to take the biography and works of Leonardo Da Vinci wherever one goes...amazing. Invaluable to library of any artist and scientist.
