“Using a manual typewriter in a New York City loft, Jack Kerouac produced the original manuscript of On the Road during a three-week period in the spring of 1951.
Kerouac produced the continuous scroll by taping pages of semi-translucent paper together to feed the typewriter and write without interruption.
The text is single-spaced, without paragraphs, and edited in pencil by Kerouac.”
Part 3: Basel - Endless Perspectives
Third destination was undoubtedly Basel, a five hour drive away from the south of Holland. Does’s first visit in 2006 left a deep impression when † Dare gave him a guided tour through the layered tunnel system and the famous Basel line. To this day the Basel line remains an important memorial site and a big drawing card for writers around the world who like to admire the original and sometimes ancient works of other artists from all over the world. Keeping in this atmosphere, Does arranged for a good spot near the trackside to set up and paint his canvasses. Despite Stephan Polman’s BBQ food poisoning, who spent a few days in hospital, this trip was incredible.
Paris is up next weekend. Get ready for it!
