"Leonardo's Kitchen Note Books" by Jonathan and Shelagh Routh.

LEONARDO, based on the thesis Shelagh and Jonathan Routh expressed in their book, “Leonardo’s Kitchen Note Books”, the fruit of seven years of research into the Codex Romanoff and the life of Leonardo da Vinci, is a raucous comedy that portrays a hilarious and virtually unknown aspect of Leonardo’s life!


The author of the book, Jonathan Routh, a legendary character of the english creative scene of the 60's, invented the famous "candid camera" and disappeared in search of anonymity when he was thirty years old. He eventually ended up in Jamaica where he lived until his death a few years ago.
