The Legacy of da Vinci is an informational book about the life of Leonardo da Vinci. Although he might be best known for artistic works such as The Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, da Vinci was also an avid inventor. His lifelong curiosity and observation of the world around him led him to develop ideas for such objects as clocks, cameras, helicopters, hydraulics, and hang gliders. These ideas, which resulted from his pursuit of knowledge, continue to fascinate people today. Photographs support the text.
