While this video offers no new thought about Jack Kerouac’s masterpiece, I really like the behind the scenes view offered by the Indianapolis Art Museum from their 2008 display of the manuscript. Laying out the pages is conservator Jim Canary, and his effort allows a rare look at the original document. Short and sweet, but nevertheless intriguing. After all, the book remains one of the Americana must reads.
