The pictures of the Mona Lisa are outstanding. Never seem to read any of it for more than a minute or two before I get absorbed by the pictures. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810943158, Hardcover)

Applying the cutting-edge forensic techniques of television’s CSI to the world’s most famous painting yields a fresh look at an old friend in Mona Lisa. A step-by-step examination of how Leonardo’s masterwork was constructed, using the latest advances in scientific observation, measurement, and analysis, this book almost literally peels back the layers on one of the most iconic images in world history. How did Leonardo prepare his panel, mix his paints, and compose his picture? For the first time ever a team of experts looks at these questions with an exacting scientific eye. Their answers shed light on both the mind of Leonardo and the wider world of Renaissance painting.

A fascinating combination of science, forensics, and art history, this gorgeous, oversized volume outdoes even the most imaginative novelist in cracking da Vinci’s creative code.
