LEONARDO DA VINCI PUZZLE CODEX : Riddles, Puzzles

RICHARD WOLFRICK GALLAND    Book Number: 83166    Product format: Hardback

With embossed cover, padded and antique look pages, marvellously illustrated in colour throughout, this is a very unusual and beautifully designed book to keep or give. Divided into novice, apprentice, expert and master puzzles, they include concentration, missing pieces, Leonardo-ku, vulgar fractions, numerals, accuracy, witchcraft, battles, spies, pentagons, Vitruvian Men, polygons, number magic and dozens more conundrums. An artist, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, and cartographer, Leonardo da Vinci possessed a remarkable mind and a scientific approach far ahead of his time. He drew sketches and plans for objects that remained unbuildable for centuries, and many of his works reputedly contain secret codes and puzzles. Inspired by Leonardo's work and styled after an antique manuscript, this book for readers 8 to adult by game designer Richard Wolfrik Galland imagines the master setting tricky questions and enigmas for his young assistant Salaì to solve. From logic problems to code breaking, here are 150 puzzles, all illustrated in the style of Leonardo. 256 pages.
