It has all of his paintings and some discussion of them, as well as drawings ranging from anatomy to architecture to landscapes.
My only quibble is that sometimes the scale of the reproductions seems unnecessarily large (eg really gigantic blow-ups of small ink drawings), which resize and recompose - and so in effect, redraw - Leonardo's drawings with a modern eye. I'd prefer them all at their actual size wherever possible - exactly as they were conceived. But this is book is so good I can live with it. And where else could you buy something like this for £70?
