Letters from Leonardo
A novel based upon the last three years of Leonardo's life when he lived in France. His book describes the places in Italy and France where Leonardo da Vinci made an impact, either through a structural design or artistic decoration as well as political projects planned or completed at a time of inter-city state warfare. A Unique Insight Into The Mind Of Leonardo Da Vinci A masterful creation that unlocks the door to Leonardo's secret hopes, loves and life. Fragments of letters and archive material that combine in an original narrative to reveal the untold story of his final years. The ambiguous relationship with his assistant. The politics of the French court and his friendship with Macchiavelli. The eternal triangle of king, queen and mistress. His greatest ambition, the mastery of flight. His final days.
Due in April 2010: Leonardo's Landscape: Describes the places in Italy and France where Leonardo da Vinci made an impact, either through a structural design or artistic decoration as well as political projects planned or completed at a time of inter-city state warfare.

The sun is out, bank holidays are in, we all want to go and explore, although this can sometimes be ruined by the dreaded mistral (p14). But let’s not spoil things. How about a visit to St Jean du Fos (p20) or if you’re feeling more urban, a nice shopping day in Avignon with a healthy tea break (p23) or a visit to an art gallery in Nîmes? (p17) If you’re feeling extra energetic like me, how about entering the Pont du Gard race on 30 June to raise money for a fantastic local charity? Also in this issue, the remarkable story of a simulated space mission by Claire (p18) and a very funny article by Bernice on her pathological inability (or so she says) to learn languages (p22).
