Milan, Italy: Skira, 2018. First Edition. Hardcover. "Through a body of works previously unpublished in Italy, this book shines a new light on the pictorial and graphic activity of one of the great literary icons of the twentieth century, the American writer Jack Kerouac, father of the Beat Generation. A comparison of his literary and artistic production reveals the labyrinthine creative process that allowed his visionary perception of reality to be expressed through the media of drawing and painting as well as in writing, music, poetry and cinema. His visual arts production...was informed not only by his relationship to the traditions of American visual culture and to other authors of the Beat movement...but also by his relationship with masters of Informal and New York School painting, whom he began frequenting in the mid-1950s." (from back cover) A collection of artworks by Jack Kerouac, featuring 80 paintings & drawings, including a portrait of his Beat Generation Fellow Founding Father William S. Burroughs. Edited & with commentaries by Sandrina Bandera, Alessandro Castiglioni & Emma Zanella. Hardcover in illustrated boards without dust jacket as issued, a beautiful production of the venerable Italian art publisher Skira. An essential & most enjoyable Kerouac collectible that sheds much light on this lesser-known or studied aspect of his life & work. As new, in publisher's shrink-wrap with several small holes-tears at back cover as we received it; one tiny bump at right lower edge of back cover. As New. [Item #4301]
