History: "The Codex Atlanticus" is a collection of drawings and writings by Leonardo Da Vinci.  In the collection there are various subjects, from flight and weapons, to musical instruments, mathematics, and botany. The Codex contains 435 pages of pure genius. Most of the manuscript consists of drawings and diagrams.  In true Da Vinci style, the manuscript is written in a dialect of Italian, backwards.

Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 4 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, which is a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.

Note: All of our facsimiles are made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for notification of shipment.
