"Steal Like an Artist"

Austin Kleon, a writer and artist in Austin, has come out with a book with this title about ethics in our day and age of re-posting, re-pinning, and all manner of re-cycling of other people's material. The poster below is his primer on the subject. Artists have repurposed the work of their predecessors since time immemorial (viz Chaucer and Shakespeare), but there are ways of transforming it that are kosher.

Here are two creative projects I love excessively and wish I'd thought of: a brainiac bookcase and a book xylophone!
