I, Leonardo is an imagined “autobiography” of Leonardo da Vinci by Ralph Steadman.

About the book:

Ralph Steadman’s obsession with Leonardo da Vinci led him to Italy – to stand in the places where genius stood and relive the sensations which preoccupied a mind that yearned to fly.

In his distinct, ingenious and anarchic style, Steadman presents key events from the life of Leonardo; among them the painting of the Last Supper, the Mona Lisa and his experiments in flight. The result is a work of sustained brilliance and triumph of imagination.
