(by Tom Palumbo, circa 1956)

Jack Kerouac fans, a seller on Etsy makes--wait for it--a soap to take on the road. Embedded in each made-to-order bar is the above black-and-white photo of the Lowell native and Beat Generation author Kerouac.

The soapmaker will add your choice of scents like coconut, cucumber or poetry. The latter scent smells like sunflower and powder. No word on what kind of powder, but the seller labels this scent as "unisex."

If you are planning your wedding, the seller suggests, "These soaps make great Wedding Favors or Bridesmaid's gifts for modern couples." I'm wondering what a Kerouac-themed wedding would entail.

If Kerouac soap has been on yours or someone else's wish list, you can order here.

(h/t to novelist Elizabeth McCracken for spotting this soap!)
