FEEDER 2: Cover Design + Frontmatter

Editors’ Introduction Draft Due: November 15, 2016 (note: the draft does not have to be laid out in InDesign)
Cover Design Draft Due: November 17, 2016
Due: December 22, 2016
Editors’ Introduction length: 2 pages

As a group, you will complete the frontmatter to your book. This frontmatter will be laid out in InDesign. The frontmatter includes:

  • A title page
  • A Table of Contents
  • Notes on Contributors sections – brief (2-3 sentences) description of who you are as a scholar. Do you have works published or lead organizations? Think of this as a written “elevator pitch” of you as a scholar.
  • A (2) page editors’ introduction that gives a brief biographic background of your poet, articulates a consistent message or theme across chapters (what are you trying to convey about your poet? What will the audience learn from reading this book?), and a brief summary of the books’ chapters.

As a group, you will choose a thematic cover image (or images) for your text and use InDesign to create a book cover image using these images.
