On the 500th anniversary of his death 144 of Leonardo da Vinci’s finest drawings are being displayed around the United Kingdom during 2019. One of the greatest collections of his work is owned by Her Majesty the Queen within the Royal Collection Trust, housed in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle and some these works are reproduced here on twelve special 1st Class stamps in the exquisite Leonardo Da Vinci Prestige Stamp Book YB081.

The richly illustrated Leonardo da Vinci Prestige Stamp Book explores the many facets of Leonardo da Vinci – his drawings, the materials he used, his paintings, his sculptures and his work as an anatomist. It includes a short biography of him as well as examples of some of his finest works including the head of the Madonna on the front cover and the head of St Anne on the reverse

The Prestige Stamp Book features three stamp panes containing all twelve Special Stamps from the set against a background featuring examples of Leonardo’s drawings and paintings including ‘The Last Supper’. A fourth pane contains Definitive stamps in colours that beautifully complement the pastels of the drawings and paintings in the book. The pane also includes a self-portrait in the centre.

The twelve 1st Class stamps are: the skull sectioned,  a sprig of guelder-rose, studies of cats, a star-of-Bethlehem and other plants , the anatomy of the shoulder and foot, the head of Leda, the head of a bearded man, the skeleton, the head of St Philip, a woman in a landscape, a design for an equestrian monument and the fall of light on a face.
