Friday’s Weekly Round-Up – 560

We’re a bit late on this but wanted to alert you all to this initiative from the Dutch ooteete:

“We ask artists from all over the world to pick a fragment from “Howl” and create an artwork based on that fragment. We publish the quotation plus corresponding artwork on our website here,  roughly bi-weekly.”

Early days but some interesting interpretations so far. Check it out


Amy Winehouse‘s copy of “Howl” (scribbled in – were those song lyrics she was working on?) will be among the items on display next weekend (April 21-24) at the 62nd Annual New York International Antiquarian Book Fair – see here


Allen’s three-fish-with-one-head logo – Marc Olmsted writes on the topic for Sensitive Skin . See our earlier posting about that topic – here 

Marco Moretti in La Stampa – Ginsberg locations (you may recall his recent Kerouac locations) – see here


Another Kerouac biography? – well, why not – Brad Parker’s  Kerouac – The Man and his Visions – Volume 1 of a projected two-volume biography is just out.
