Praise For…


"This striking addition to the Meet the Artist series focuses on the life and work of the influential Renaissance artist and innovator. Geis provides a richly multidimensional and fittingly dynamic exploration of da Vinci's eclectic oeuvre."
- Publishers Weekly

"Leonardo da Vinci: Meet the Artist! is original, informative, instructional, fun, and highly recommended."
- Children's Bookwatch

"This hardcover is fun! Loaded with interactive features, it also takes into consideration most juveniles' interest in robots. It's an entertaining and educative book."
- Arts Activities

"I could recommend any book in this Patricia Geis collection published by Priceton Architectural Press without fear of making a mistake: pop-ups and tabs are not limited to making the immersion in each of the most interactive characters but they can help explain concepts in a way more graphic . But, above all, I appreciate the rigorous content, which manages to contextualize Da Vinci with such simplicity and clarity."
- Mondobello Magazine (Spain)
