Now you too can follow in the steps of Dan Brown’s symbologist hero Robert Langdon, star of The Da Vinci Code. And you don’t even have to grown your own mullet—a la Tom Hanks—to do so. That’s because guidebook publisher Fodor’s is set to release its own Guide to the Da Vinci Code later this month.
You may think this is a completely, utterly, totally ridiculous (though probably very profitable) publishing proposition. And you’d be right. Then again, at $15 the book is still about $460 cheaper than hiring your own Da Vinci Code guide to show you around Paris.
Whatever happened to traveling as a way to see, you know, real stuff?
