Description
Everybody knows the image: a man, meticulously rendered by Leonardo da Vinci, standing with arms and legs outstretched in a circle and a square. Deployed today to celebrate subjects as various as the grandeur of art, the beauty of the human form, and the universality of the human spirit, "Vitruvian Man" has become the world's most famous cultural icon -- and yet almost nobody knows about the epic intellectual journeys that led to its creation. Journalist and storyteller Toby Lester brings Vitruvian Man to life, resurrecting the ghost of an unknown Leonardo, an artist-philosopher whose famous drawing was influenced by a colorful cast of characters that included anatomists, architects, and even emperors.
