Coverall: On the Road
Continuing on with the Iconic Book Cover series, today’s book is On the Road, everyone’s favorite beatnik classic. I read it one summer right after high school, waiting to be blown away by Kerouac’s bohemian adventures. But even then I could tell he wasn’t my kind of writer, and I wasn’t surprised to learn he had typed out the whole thing on one long uninterrupted roll of typewriter paper in a matter of weeks. Have you guys read it? Did you like it?
To me, this look is beachy, a little bohemian without going the hippy-dippy route. I love the single palm tree on the Topshop tunic–it’s like a very updated Hawaiian print. I would love to wear this to dinner and drinks at a beach-front restaurant!
