    Talking American Artist: Drawing Magazine Discusses the Vitruvian Man

    Anthony Panzera a teacher at Hunter College NYC, wrote an unpublished book about Leonardo's notebook in which he drew illustrations inspired by the renaissance master's proportional theories.

    It's in the newest issue.

    Not the newest issue, but just a cover

    American Artist: Drawing Magazine Discusses the Vitruvian Man



    I'd like to get the more historically informed (as I become more knowledgable) about their thoughts on Vitruvian Man, the theories of Leonardo and if anyone knows of books on the subject of Marcus Vitruvius Pollo.
