Penguin Launches Digital ‘On The Road’

Jack Kerouac‘s classic novel On the Road has a new life as a digital book app from Penguin Digital. The app includes the original 1957 novel, as well as a number of interactive features.

The app brings to life the road novel with interactive maps of Kerouac’s travels. Alongside Kerouac’s original sketches of his road map, Penguin Digital has created a map that brings to life the trip with quotes from the book about different cities and towns along the way. There is also a section about the author and the Beat generation. This includes biography, images from his family archives, audio recordings of the author speaking, videos of Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Carolyn Cassady talking about their friend,  and Kerouac’s statement on writing.

The app goes on sale in iTunes tomorrow. The iPad app will be on sale for $12.99 through July 2nd. (The price will go up to $16.99 after the sale).
