He has also published two historical novels, Domino (1995) and Ex-Libris (1998), and edited a collection of Leonardo da Vinci's fables, jokes and riddles. Translated into more than a dozen languages, his books have been nominated for a National Book Critics' Circle Award, the Charles Taylor Prize, and the National Award for Arts Writing. He also won Canada's Governor General's Literary Award in Non-fiction twice: in 2006 for The Judgement of Paris: The Revolutionary Decade That Gave the World Impressionism and in 2012 for his latest book, Leonardo and The Last Supper.
