Jack Kerouac’s On the Road Retold by Google Maps

There have been more than a few artists from across various media attempt to bring something new to Kerouac’s classic road novel. One element that particularly fascinates is the map . We are forever being shown new interpretations of his journeys, with each artist highlighting some different theme.

Gregor Weichbrodt has a very new take – he has attempted to turn Kerouac’s story into a set of directions as told by Google Maps. Weichbrodt has since turned these directions into a book which comes out to forty-something pages.
