The anatomical sketches of Leonardo, in a downloadable edition

LEONARDO DA VINCI

The Buckingham Palace Royal Collection puts its Renaissance jewels at the disposal of all internet users.

Several anatomical drawings by Leonardo Da Vinci, which until recently were exclusively reserved for the eyes of those who visit Buckingham’s Palace, have been carefully digitized and made available to all those who have access not to the Palace, but to the internet.

Apart from the intricate sketches, studies, side notes and detailed illustrations of the Renaissance Italian master that the Online Archive of the Royal Collection Trust has now released, those who own an iPad can also download the whole collection on their devices with an application that compiles the 268 pages of the Da Vinci notebooks. For a price, that is.

Yet another reason to say “God save the Queen,” it seems.
