If you have an extra $10,000 sitting around…

…and you want to spend it on a book, here’s your opportunity. Steidl has released a limited edition artist book of Jack Kerouac’s classic On the Road with illustrations by Ed Ruscha. Here are the details:

Ed Ruscha’s personal affinity with Jack Kerouac’s seminal novel On the Road has been wonderfully resolved in this limited edition book. Ruscha has designed the book, illustrating Kerouac’s text with his own photographs.
The text is printed in Letterpress on 220g Hahnemühle paper and every one of the 55 photo-plates is blind embossed and tipped in by hand to create an exquisite and original edition of On the Road.

The book, published by Gagosian Gallery and Steidl, is signed and numbered by the artist in an edition of 350.
