Blackout poetry

NEWSPAPERS ARE BEING USED…AGAIN. But this is a bit different. Austin Keon developed the idea and has a book—Newspaper Blackout—to prove it.

It’s like writing poetry as sculpture: The words are all there but you have to blot a lot of them out to get to those that really mean something. I’ve tried it. It works! Good mental exercise for us word-and-visual people.

Take a look here.

Then give it a shot yourself. Looks easy. But we all know: Looks are deceiving.
