UK Edition, 1961
Here are my choice selections from the dozens of book covers of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road posted by the Beat Book Covers website.
Apparently this was Kerouac’s response to all the different cover designs and foreign editions:
“When I’m old, you know what I’m going to do? I’m going to study languages reading these.”
Jack Kerouac’s own (unsed) concept for the book jacket, done in 1952.
