The Da Vinci Code became a bestselling novel after its publication in 2003, selling over 80 million copies worldwide. Readers were enthralled by its well-timed cliffhangers and mysterious characters. For dedicated fans of Dan Brown’s many genre novels, these qualities came as no surprise, but The Da Vinci Code reached a whole new level of audience. What set it apart from other thrillers was its engagement with history. Much of the plot involves interpretations of artwork, ancient symbols, and historic locations in Europe. These important aspects of the work give it an “almost true” quality, placing readers not just in its fictional storyline, but also in the timeline of European history. Publishers capitalized on these qualities by releasing this special illustrated edition in 2004. It contains over 160 images of the novel’s crucial art, architecture, and locations, allowing readers a closer glimpse into the narrative and its fascinating settings. In 2006, it was adapted to film, starring Tom Hanks, Audrey Tatau, and Sir Ian McKellen.
