Inspired by the newspaper blackout poetry of Austin Kleon, MacDonald created a new book by cutting, scribbling and drawing on a copy of Be Excellent at Anything: The Four Keys To Transforming the Way We Work and Live by Tony Schwartz, Jean Gomes & Catherine McCarthy.
Check it out: “The process was largely therapeutic. It was far more interesting to ‘write’ things than simply read the pre-existing book! … Anyhow, after 3 weeks, 5 felt pens and 100 hours of work later, I eventually finished de-writing the entire 352 page book, which I’ve renamed “Be Anything” … As it stands, the original book is a completely unique one-off artifact consisting of more than 350 unique drawings and phrases.” (Via Reddit)
