Publisher's description: Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper is one of history's greatest masterpieces -- and while his unique dry painting technique resulted in a work of great fragility, it also allowed him to achieve unparalleled light effects and a precision best glimpsed close up. That's what this stunning volume offers: an exclusive digitized, high-definition magnification of the painting that reveals even the smallest details, invisible to the naked eye, in their full expressive splendor. As you leaf through this book you can admire, as never before possible, the realistic expressions on the faces of the individual Apostles, the movements and positions of their hands, and the smallest features of the outfitted table, thus entering practically into direct contact with Leonardo's genius.
