Da Vinci Notebooks

Smythe Sewn Book

Using selected text of Leonardo da Vinci’s journal entries in Irma A. Richter’s "The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci", this project plays with typography and image to create a dynamic reading experience while maintaining legibility. 

Images were sourced from Richter’s book as well as a variety of art history, engineering, and geography books to better contextualize da Vinci’s ideas and inventions for today’s reader.
