About This Item

New York City, New York: Penguin Books, 1979. First Printing. Broadside. Fine. Bernhardt Fudyma Design Group. A large promotional poster announcing the publication of the first paperback edition of the acclaimed Jack’s Book: "An Oral Biography of Jack Kerouac", by Barry Gifford & Lawrence Lee. With a bold, colorful illustration based on a much-reproduced photograph of Kerouac by Allen Ginsberg. The text at the bottom reads: "The King of the Beat Generation lives again in the words of his friends and lovers." The book being promoted is a mosaic of memories & perspectives on Kerouac, by those who knew him best & were immortalized in his works, including William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg & many others. A wonderful poster with a striking variation of an iconic Kerouac image, in fine condition with only three tiny pinholes at upper left corner, middle & right corner of upper edge, minor waves & creases at edges.
