If art imitated capitalism, it would look like Borges' Travel, Hemingway's Garage. In this secret guide to culture, Mark Axelrod has scoured Europe and the Americas photographing products and businesses that bear the great names of Western civilization and then has recounted the little-known turns of fate by which our immortals ended up in these mundane straits. For those who lament our culture's prostitution to capital, Borges' Travel, Hemingway's Garage offers definitive proof that art lives on.

Learn the untold history of Rembrandt's Toothpaste, Van Gogh's Potatoes, Lautrec Handbags, and Kipling's Rucksacks. Dine on Fellini's Pollo La Strada in Brussels. Hear the great Czech fabulist kibitzing with his cooks at Kafka's Cafe, and find out about Christ's "hidden years" at the Taverne Chez Jesus.
