About this title


I have always felt it is my destiny to build a machine that would allow man to fly,” wrote Leonardo da Vinci in his journal alongside a sketch for an impossibly ingenious invention he called his Flying Machine. Though never built, it takes flight here in Journal of Inventions: Leonardo da Vinci. This fascinating book is an exquisite collection of elaborate 3-D pop-ups and detailed illustrations based on the personal notebooks and sketches of the Renaissance’s most influential mind. Discover da Vinci’s Mechanical Man, coil-spring clock mechanisms, hydraulic contraptions, and designs for armored vehicles the precursor to modern tanks. Each invention is brought to life as a movable 3-D pop-up, with da Vinci’s own words and illustrations to provide further insight. This endlessly fascinating book is sure to inspire young readers and adults alike.

Jaspre Bark is a novelist, children's author and graphic novel writer. His work has been translated into five different languages and his educational books are used in schools throughout the United Kingdom to improve literacy among 12 to 16 year olds. Prior to this he worked as a film, theatre and art critic for the British National Press. His play A Glasgow Kiss was awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1999. He has collaborated with many contemporary fine artists on performances and installations, including Turner Prize winner Keith Tyson. Jaspre's research into these inventions is the culmination of a life long fascination with the works of Leonardo da Vinci.
