Ah, if only every book were illustrated thusly

Portrait  said to be a lost work by Leonardo da Vinci

A portrait that sold at Christie’s auction house for just $21,000 is thought by some scholars to be a lost work by Leonardo da Vinci. The portrait, which surfaced in 1998, appears to have come from a 500-year-old book titled “Sforziad.”

Da Vinci, did your illustrations? Wild.
Discovering you found a Da Vinci? Priceless.

Chances you’ll find this in an eBook 500 years from now? Zero.
