Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

Dear all

Just out of curiosity, what is the relation between the da Vinci work and BPVC? Why did they choose that for the cover page?

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

It helps to sell code books.

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

He even gave it a name that we still use today - Codex Madrid I. Genius!
(I wish he could reappear for 5 minutes today, long enough to show how Elon Musk is not the genius the interweb proclaims him to be.)

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

good information victorpbr

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

Cannon barrels of the day probably came closer than anything da Vinci thought up.

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

Probably about as relevant as the tank that used to be on the cover, it isn't even a sketch of the alleged pressure vessel concept.

Seems to me like the marketing department's interpretation of engineering, explaining it to them doesn't work, I have been through that before..

RE: Leonardo da Vinci and BPVC

If it is for marketing issue then it was better to choose Mona Lisa.
