History Made Awesome

By Adam W. 

I was lucky to walk into a library with an amazing legacy that was invisible to most people on the campus. I say I was lucky because I was able to change it. I discovered a copy of the De Divina Proportione (Divine Proportion), which is a 1509 mathematical treatise illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci. The Divina is the Leonardo’s only work to appear during the Master’s lifetime.

Well I went down the rabbit hole of discovery and made connections between the sciences and arts, history, legacy and future, what I learned was that libraries can be the engine for connecting our past to the the present through the physical objects that transcend both times.
