On the Road — in drawings by Paul Rogers

The beauty and power of On the Road has little or nothing to do with its plot, and everything to do with writer Jack Kerouac's desire to transmit directly to the reader his experience of the raw wild beauty of the American land and its people. Illustrator Paul Rogers has launched a long-term project to illustrate the book, with a drawing from every page, and, for a Saturday, how better to re-experience the shock of its directness, its neediness, its writerly fireworks. 

In no particular order, some fav drawings from the scrolls
