Codex Atlanticus

Inviting viewers to "explore the largest existing collection of original writings and drawings by Leonardo da Vinci," Codex Atlanticus offers a unique and incredibly comprehensive look at da Vinci's musings and work. Before diving in, visitors will likely want to toggle through the instructional tabs on the How to Read page (linked at the top-center of the site). Here, you will learn about how the site is ordered, as well as different ways to view its contents. Returning to the project, readers can select certain parameters (such as ordering numerically or chronologically) and filters (such as "Physics and Natural Sciences" or "Tools and Machines") to make the site's contents easier to digest. Each page of the Codex is represented by a colorful box in the General Overview. Clicking on a box enlarges that page for viewing. Readers should note that the project is available in English and Italian, and you can change your language preference using the button in the lower right-hand corner. The site has garnered significant praise for its creative visuals, including winning design awards from both Information is Beautiful and Indigo. The Visual Agency produced Codex Atlanticus with support from Biblioteca Ambrosiana and Mondadori Portfolio.
