Leonardo's Notebooks, by Leonardo da Vinci, Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers– Hard Cover, 334 pp. $40
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) possessed arguably the greatest mind the world has ever known. Artist, draftsman, inventor, and philosopher, his contributions to modern society are profound and wide-reaching. Throughout his life, Leonardo kept dozens of notebooks, elegant studies on topics ranging from architecture to botany to philosophy— indeed nearly anything of which the human imagination could conceive.
Leonardo' s Notebooks collects a variety of the most fascinating of these studies and compiles them into one monumental volume that demystifies his insights and clearly illustrates his ideas, experiments, and observations with hundreds of his original sketches, line drawings, and paintings. Topics include Anatomy and the Movement of the Human Figure; Botany and Landscape; Engineering and Military Engineering; Physical Sciences; Aerodynamics and Flight; Geography— and more.
Cherished Thoughts With Love, by Anne Geddes, Andrews McMeel Publishing, Photography/Art, 124 pp. $28
A baby is magic. But a baby in Anne Geddes's work is simply out of this world. One of the most respected and successful photographers working today, Anne Geddes mixes photography, imagery, and imagination in a way that truly captures the innocence and essence of children. In her images we see new life for all it is 00 and all it can be.
Now comes Cherished Thoughts with Love, the follow-up to one of Anne Geddes' best-selling titles, Little Thoughts of Love. Cherished Thoughts combines the beautiful images that first appeared in Until Now and Pure with a special selection of poignant quotations about childhood, family, and the unmatchable bond between a mother and her baby. This is a book about new beginnings, tiny miracles, and futures rich with promise.
Cherished Thoughts with Love offers proof, once again, that Anne Geddes has both the eye and the ability to convey these rich themes like no one else. Her books take readers into a different world, a place where comfort and joy flow from every page.
