Russian company digitising Tolstoy's works

Project underway to preserve master novelist's 90-volume standard collection, plus diaries and lesser-known writings.

    He was the Russian master novelist, whose works inspired people like Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King.

    Now Leo Tolstoy's entire body of work is being digitised, making it more accessible to the modern world.
