Take Notes, Leonardo

• The cascading curls of Leonardo’s Drawing of a Woman’s Head closely resemble his studies of water, a comparison that he himself made in his journals. Hair, he says, has “two motions, of which one depends on the weight of the strands, the other on the direction of the curls.” In the same way, turbulent water creates eddies based on the main current together with random and reverse motion.

• Jean-Michel Verbeeck Innovates is a modern-day Vitruvian man that questions the distinction between physical and virtual reality. The flat surface of black polygons transforms into a body made of shifting configurations of light.

• This Lampshade by Spooky Shades allows light to illuminate Da Vinci’s drawings of anatomy and inventions.

• Baghy’s Journal is bound by leather hand-painted with one of Leonardo’s sketches, perhaps to inspire you to note your own observations.

• Steve’s Hollow Book Safe holds your valuables under Da Vinci’s watchful eye.

• Christopher’s Fountain Pen is made of grapevine and old oak wood that have been polished to bring out the gorgeous grain pattern.

• This Fountain Pen available at Therese Saint Clair is gold-plated and engraved with reproductions of Leonardo’s journals. Take a look at Sheila & Richard’s Style Journal for more inspiration on elegant living.
