Our Education, Austin Kleon, 2014

Always honored to get a blog from someone I follow.

I don’t usually post these to this tumblr, although, maybe I should. I post a new blackout every day on Instagram→

ON SALE: We were digging in our flat files and found some extremely limited-edition prints that we pulled way back in 2010.

NYTimes.com: Searching for Poetry in Prose

Popularized in recent years by writer and author Austin Kleon, blackout poetry encourages readers to create poems by redacting words from ordinary texts. During the last seven days of National Poetry Month, we will feature snippets of Times articles you can use to create and share your own short poems.

Holy moly, the NYTimes does blackout poetry. Things come full circle.

(Submit your creations here!)

Took ‘em long enough ;-)

I’ve published a brief history of Newspaper Blackout and this site over on Medium. Give it a read!

Now I should go make a poem, I guess…

Austin Kleon’s Newspaper Blackout can now be read on a screen! I mean, you’ve probably seen bits of it on his tumblr but this here is the ebook and I’m so glad we’ve finally been able to make it available. Newsprint never looked so good.

“The poem will resemble you.”

How to Make a Dadaist Poem

Take a newspaper.
Take a pair of scissors.
Choose an article as long as you are planning to make your poem.
Cut out the article.
Then cut out each of the words that make up this article and put them in a bag.
Shake it gently.
Then take out the scraps one after the other in the order in which they left the bag.
Copy conscientiously.
The poem will be like you.
And here are you a writer, infinitely original and endowed with a sensibility that is charming though beyond the understanding of the vulgar.
—Tristan Tzara

The poem will resemble you.
