Leonardo Notebook

Various authors, British Museum, Aug 26, 2003
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Wonderous. That's the only word I can use to describe the experience of reading Leonardo's notebooks online. Well, not 'reading' per se, because my capacity to read the hand-scrawled pages is limited. Still, looking at the actual script and diagrams gives me a thrill, and helps narrow the bounds of years and language that separate us. Readers can also view the Lindisfarne Gospels, Sultan Baybars' Qur'an and the Sherborne Missal. Amazing.
