Alexis C. Madrigal of The Atlantic brings to attention the recent release of Leonardo Da Vinci's notebooks, the Codex Arundel, by the British Library. The pages are beautifully scanned and reveal an incredible amount of detail, writing and sketches.

"Each of these six manuscripts is a true splendour, and has immense significance in its respective field, whether that be Anglo-Saxon literature, Carolingian or Flemish art, or Renaissance science and learning," Julian Harrison, the museum's curator of medieval artifacts, blogged. "On Digitised Manuscripts you'll be able to view every page in full and in colour, and to see the finer details using the deep zoom facility."
