The rights for an edition in Korean of Leonardo Da Vinci. A Chinese Scholar Lost in Renaissance Italy had been sold a couple of weeks ago by Lascar Publishing Ltd to LP PUBLISHING a reputable publisher based in Seoul, specialised in works on art and philosophy.
The translation work in Korean will begin soon and we expect to see it printed during the Spring of 2017.
The rights to publish an Italian edition were also sold to Gingko, an Italian publishing house based in Bologna.
The translation in Italian has been completed and the book will be out by the end of the current year, greatly enriched by a presentation written by Prof. Carlo Pedretti, the greatest living expert on Leonardo and former curator of the the Bill Gates Codex. Pedretti is the author of hundreds of books and essays while most of the discoveries of the last 60 years on the Florentine genius are due to Pedretti’s work and passion.
By the end of June 2016 Cactus Moon Publishing based in Tempe, Arizona, will publish my next work: The Dew of Heaven which is based on historical facts, beginning with Italy’s intervention in the Boxer War of 1900 up to contemporary Hong Kong, Macau and Mongolia.
