One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action, and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
Bobby Solomon believes readers should have a say in their book covers.
The LA-based writer hosts a monthly contest on his design blog, The Fox is Black, that invites anyone and everyone to "re-cover" his monthly selection.
The rules: "come up with something that's new and contemporary, something that will grab the attention of a person walking by but that still stays true to the spirit of the book," he writes. "Don't do anything retro, a Penguin throwback or anything of the sort. I want to see new, fresh ideas"
The Prize: $100 Amazon gift card
This month's book is Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. For file specifications and submission information, check out the contest entry.
All submissions are due by September 1 at midnight.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
