Austin Kleon and Blackout Writing

by Austin Kleon

A couple of weeks ago the boyfriend and I came across Austin Kleon’s book, “Newspaper Blackout”. After flipping through the pages in amazement and love, we knew that we had to try this together. So, the nerd couple that we are, spent part of our Saturday morning creating blackout poetry together. I can honestly say that it is tons of fun to create something from the already existing — to see something beautiful amongst the business of the daily news. As probably expected by those who know us, D and I have decided to keep a Moleskine full of our blackout poems. I am pretty stoked to see what awesomeness we come up with. (:

PS: I cannot wait to read Kleon’s book-in-progress, “Steal Like An Artist”. You can get the gist of the book by reading this blog post of his — really good!
