Newspaper Blackout Poetry: Read Between the Lines

Sometimes in life you can only grasp the true beauty of things when you read between the lines. That is exactly what Austin Kleon has been doing to old newspapers. Using a black marker, he takes away the words he doesn’t need, creating new poetic verses. He has compiled his poetry into a book called Newspaper Blackout and invites others to upload their own blackout poetry on his Tumblr page. It’s like a new twist on magnetic poetry that will leave you unable to look at a newspaper in the same way again!
