Cover Design Contest by Little, Brown, and Company

jesterAuthor David Foster Wallace and Little, Brown, and Company are sponsoring a cover design contest to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wallace’s book, Infinite Jest.

Infinite Jest was published to critical acclaim back in 1996. From Amazon’s book page: A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the pursuit of happiness in America. Set in an addicts’ halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. 

Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human – and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do.

The winning cover design will be used as the jacket cover on the anniversary re-release of the book, and will win a $1.000 American Express gift card. Deadline for submissions is September 15th.  Follow this link for rules and details.
