Coming Soon: Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine

The second of my poems to be illustrated by artist Anne Horjus and published by Acroterion Books is Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine, the libretto-breve for the iconic choral work by Eric Whitacre. This new book tells the story of Leonardo's dream of flight through sumptuous oil paintings created by Anne over the last three years. His paintings are adapted from Leonardo originals, created in the Master's style, and ingeniously flow one into another by utilizing the sacred geometry of Leonardo's face as a compositional idée fixe.

 

The Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the book, timed to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the life and accomplishments of the great Renaissance Master, was a HUGE success, and we are now in the process of creating the book, for general release in November 2019.
