Flash Post: Yesterday’s News

What it is: Part humour, part poetry, Austin Kleon’s collection takes pages from the New York Times and blacks out any words he feels he doesn’t need. The result? Wry looks at the meaning (or lack thereof) in our daily news.
Who it’s for: Your best friend that’s all about Post Secret or The Oatmeal. Your favourite newly minted college student that is in desperate need of something spectacular on their bookshelves. Your relative that’s slogging it out as a journalist at your local newspaper.
What it costs: $12.73 online / $13.99 in person
Where it’s at: Your favourite local bookseller. Or you can order it online from the likes of Indigo or Amazon.
