The Leonardo Journal was founded in Paris in 1968 by kinetic artist and astronautics pioneer Frank Malina. Malina saw the need for a journal that would not only serve as an international channel of communication between artists but that would also feature the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work. Today, Leonardo is the leading journal for readers interested in the application of contemporary science and technology in music and the arts.
