There is no question that Leonardo da Vinci and his "Mona Lisa" are two of the most recognizable names in the world. Leonardo is the subject of much veneration and debate, but he left behind only a few paintings. The Louvre Museum, with one of the world's largest collections of art under one roof, also boasts the largest collection of Leonardo's work, including the "Mona Lisa", "La Belle Ferronniere", "The Virgin of the Rocks" and "St. John the Baptist". Leonardo was a polymath, well-versed in painting, drawing, sculpture, architecture, engineering, anatomy, philosophy and even rudimentary robotics. "The Da Vinci Book" contains everything you wanted to know about Leonardo da Vinci and "The Da Vinci Code" in nearly 100 quizzes, word puzzles and games. Who was the model for the "Mona Lisa"? Whose writings did Leonardo study? Did he invent the idea of aviation as we know it today? Illustrated with some Leonardo's own drawings and paintings, "The Da Vinci Book" has all the questions - and all the answers.
