On The Road, Jack Kerouac, 1957. This cover, from the first British edition, was designed by Len Deighton, who became a prodigious author in his own right. We just can’t get over all that text on the left: “Liquor, Girls, Fun, Jazz” — Would it be so wrong to add an “Oh my!”?

ON A ROLL, Yiming Bao. The idea of this totem pole comes from the method Jack Kerouac used to write his most successful novel, On the Road. In 1951, Kerouac wrote this novel in three weeks by continuously typing onto a 120-foot-long teletype paper roll. On this totem, several important quotes were selected from the book and cut out on a long paper roll to pay tribute to the original draft.
