NPM 2010 – Newspaper Blackout

admin    April 5, 2010

Austin Kleon lives in Autin, TX.  He makes poetry using a black marker to black out text on a newspaper page, leaving behind the words of his poems.  “Egyptian Sculptures” is one of my favorites. 

Besides the website, Kleon has a book of his poetry out too.  He also started a site where you can upload and share your own Newspaper Blackout poems.  All you need is a paper and a marker.  As Austin says, creativity is subtraction.
