A newly-released website, www.davincinotebooks.com makes available the entire content of Leonardo da Vinci’s 14th century notes. Renaissance humanism saw no mutually exclusive polarities between the sciences and the arts, and as impressive and innovative as Leonardo’s artistic work are his studies in science and engineering, recorded in notebooks comprising some 13,000 pages of notes and drawings, which fuse art and science. The downloadable text is available in pdf format and has been reformatted for ease of download from the original to just over 1,100 pages. And to think Bill Gates paid $16 million for his copy.
