This is Austin Kleon. Doesn’t he look nice?
This is his book, Newspaper Blackout. Doesn’t it look nice?
In case you can’t read that quote on the cover, it’s “instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs the New York Times and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need.” That pretty much sums up Newspaper Blackout. It’s creative, it’s innovative, and it’s fun. We’re publishing it on April 13, but before that, there’s a contest!
The prizes: prints like the one you see above
What you need to do: Preorder Newspaper Blackout, sign up for Austin’s mailing list, reblog Austin’s post on Tumblr, or tweet with the hashtag #newspaperblackout on twitter (or all four!)
With all those ways to win, how can you NOT enter?
