The Evening Standard, London

3.0 out of 5 stars So near but so far
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 2, 2019
Very large and very comprehensive book but there are 2 things that really irritate me.
a) There is an almost obsessional preoccupation with extreme close-ups. One double page shows just a nose and lips. Another double page shows the head of Cecilia Gallerani on the left leaf, with part of her head running in to the centre valley, and the right leaf shows nothing at all. On the other hand Leonardo's divine sketch 'Study for the head of a girl 1483' which could easily have been shown actual size, is presented like a postage stamp.
b) This is a really giant size book, like a pulpit bible, and on the text pages there are vast areas of blank white paper, yet the printing point size is very small. Being a 'senior' this means I have to use strong reading glasses which simply puts me off reading the text at all. In a book this size and stature I find this an unacceptable failure of graphic design so for me this is a case of 'so near yet so far'. You may well think me harsh and unkind, and for the Leonardo lover this is great value for money, and I understand the paperback edition is presented in a more handleable 2 volume edition, which I now wish I had ordered. Is this is so please enlighten me.
c) I would only say, before you slag me off as I'm sure you'd like to, I'm a trained designer and a registered Architect and am very accustomed to being vilified for the shortcomings of my work, so I feel no remorse for passing on the benefit of my feelings to this forum.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 10, 2019
Its a great book with many sketches but some close ups are a big disappointment- it would be better if they weren’t there at all! Feels like the publisher didn’t care
