Leonardo Da Vinci by Walter Isaacson

 

Leonardo da Vinci was history's most creative genius - what secrets can he teach us? Based on thousands of pages from Leonardo's astonishing notebooks and new discoveries about his life and work, Walter Isaacson, author of bestselling biographies Steve Jobs, Einstein and Benjamin Franklin weaves a narrative that connects da Vinci’s art to his science. Da Vinci produced the two most famous paintings in history - The Last Supper and Mona Lisa, but in his own mind, he was just as much a man of science and technology. With a passion that sometimes became obsessive, he pursued innovative studies of anatomy, fossils, birds, the heart, flying machines, botany, geology, and weaponry.

Winter by Ali Smith

 
Winter. Bleak. Frosty wind, earth as iron, water as stone, so the old song goes. In Ali Smith's Winter, life-force matches up to the toughest of the seasons. In this second novel in her seasonal cycle and follow-up to her sensational Autumn, Smith's shapeshifting novel casts a warm, wise, merry and uncompromising eye over a post-truth era in a story rooted in history and memory.
