Your Design Could Become the Cover of the ‘Infinite Jest’ Anniversary Edition

Graphic designers, take note: David Foster Wallace‘s publisher is looking for a new cover to cloak Infinite Jest, and they want to see what you can do.

Little, Brown and Company is planning to release a new edition of the author’s famous and groundbreaking novel for the work’s 20th anniversary next year. The book was originally published in February of 1996.

To design the cover of the anniversary edition, the publisher is turning to the public. They’re hosting a design contest with a top prize of $1,000 in the form of an American Express gift card. More importantly, the winning design could be featured on the cover of the new printing of Infinite Jest.

Hopeful designers will have to get started right away: the contest deadline is September 15, which is just a little more than two weeks off. If you are planning to make a submission, make sure that you read all of the contest’s rules. The publisher will announce the winner of the contest this coming October.

It’s been a big year for David Foster Wallace fans. The legendary author is also the subject of a popular film starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg.
