Leonardo da Vinci manuscript in Dublin

This weekend I finally made it along to see Leonardo da Vinci's "Codex Leicester" manuscript in Dublin's Chester Beatty Library.

Subtitled "Reflections on Water and the Moon", it was great to see some of his intricate scientific drawings first hand.

And I was a pleasantly surprised at how many people were there - it's not often that an exhibition of a scientific manuscript would attract so many curious visitors.

The exhibition runs until 12 August 2007 and tickets can be pre-booked online.
