Dan Brown - Origin Cover

Following much online speculation about the location, jacket and content of Origin, the eagerly awaited new thriller by global publishing phenomenon Dan Brown, Transworld has released the UK jacket this afternoon (27 June 2017).

Unfolding entirely in Spain - Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, and Bilbao, the home of the Guggenheim Museum - Origin thrusts Langdon into the intersection of two of humankind’s most enduring questions:

Where do we come from? Where are we going?

In keeping with his trademark style, Brown interweaves codes, symbols, science, religion, history, art and architecture with a decidedly fresh twist; the art is modern and the science taps into the most advanced cutting edge technology available today.
