3.0 out of 5 stars Leonardo for kids July 7 2006
By David Adams - Published on Amazon.com
If you already have a lot of Leonardo books, you can skip this one. It is pretty sketchy in information, kind of like a Leonardo for kids. Yes, they do show close ups of the painting but in its terribly deteriorated state, you really don't get much more information other than that it is in a sad condition.
