Abstract:

Through a body of stunning historical photographs, Eva Koleva Timothy breathes new life into an age when learning was life's grand adventure and where genius was less a matter of genetics than of passion and perspective.Turning her lens upon the lives of history's heroes, she has revealed the key to a great secret: that we too, like the celebrated luminaries of old, are born: Creators, Discoverers and Dreamers. So come set sail with Columbus, soar among the heavens with Galileo, dive into drawings of DaVinci and discover the passion which moved the masters of an age as they lost themselves in the rapture that is great learning.
