The Measure - a typesetting / design contest
Each month, a public domain work is offered, and anyone who wants to enter takes the first chapter and designs / typesets it. The winner then gets to pick the following month's title. It's low-key, and fun. To kick it off: Dracula!

It's easy to appreciate good book cover design. And people do. A number of publishing and design organizations celebrate good covers. But it seems like nobody recognizes great typesetting or book interior design. So I made a contest!

I hope you check it out, and if you're handy with InDesign (or similar), it'd be awesome if you entered!

P.S. A typesetting / Halloween joke for you!

Q: What's the scariest typeface?

A: Hellvetica
Role: creator
