I was wondering if you might have any recommendations for books on the Medicis, and also books about Da Vinci?
Thanks in advance.
I’d start with Vasari’s life of Leonardo. You can find English translations online. I have a good biography of Leonardo at home, but can’t remember the author’s name right now. I will try to get that for you this evening.
On the Medici, Christopher Hibbert is pretty good: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0688053394/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0688053394&linkCode=as2&tag=thewesttrad-20&linkId=NKUZD32CASSO7GNU
Here’s a link to the Leonardo biography I mentioned: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0140169822/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0140169822&linkCode=as2&tag=thewesttrad-20&linkId=DGYYAZLRQRCZLT7Z
Thank you very much. I’ll be buying all of them.
