About This Item

(RUSCHA, EDWARD). Kerouac, Jack & Edward Ruscha. Bob Monk, Coordinating Editor. ED RUSCHA: ON THE ROAD: AN ARTIST BOOK OF THE CLASSIC NOVEL BY JACK KEROUAC - LIMITED SIGNED SLIPCASED EDITION. Signed and Numbered by the Artist. New York & Gottingen, GERMANY: Gagosian - Steidl, 2009. First Edition 1/350 Deluxe. Oblong Folio. Full Leather in Slipcase. Illustrated Book. Fine/No Jacket - As Issued. 228pp, 55 b&w photographic illustrations. Text in English. Designed by Ed Ruscha. Ed Ruscha's personal affinity with Jack Kerouac's seminal novel "On the Road" has been wonderfully resolved in this sumptuous limited edition volume. Ruscha has designed the book - illustrating Kerouac's classic of Beat literature with his own photographs. The text is printed by letterpress on 220 gram Hahnemühle paper with each of the fifty-five photographic plates die-cut, blind-embossed, and tipped in by hand to create an exquisite and original edition of "On the Road". The book is bound in sensual full grey leather with the title silkscreened using Kerouac's handwriting on the front cover and spine. It is housed in a matching grey leather slipcase accompanied by the publisher's pair of protective white gloves, as issued. A brand new, most handsome example of the first and only printing of this lavish reworking of Kerouac's magnum opus limited to three hundred and fifty copies NUMBERED (260/350), SIGNED AND DATED "Ed Ruscha 2009" in pencil on the rear colophon, as issued in its somewhat worn and reinforced printed outer shipping carton. It is additionally accompanied by a copy of the publisher's thirty-two page hors commerce prospectus that photographically documents the collaboration between Ed Ruscha and Gerhard Steidl to bring this magnum opus to fruition. 3-86521-947-0 Inventory Number: 022706
