On the Road Again & Again

Foreign editions of Jack Kerouac's book, On the Road, continue to multiply. You can view an amazing assortment of more than 200 of the covers designs here. Dave Moore, the curator of this collection, began buying these editions in the 1960s, often swapping copies with other collectors. The covers range from the eerily evocative to the outright goofy. And see Jack's own book jacket design he created in 1952. He was a far better writer than he was a book designer.
