Stacked Deck Press is seeking a book designer for a hardcover art book project based on Professor Ajuan Mance’s illustration series 1,001 Black Men. This book will also include essays and poetry on the topic of Black masculinity from prominent academics and authors. The illustrations are in color, and showcasing them while fluidly integrating them with the written content is the goal.
Compensation will include a payment upon completion of the project and percentage of book royalties. The designer, if willing and available, may be invited for promotional appearances at comic conventions and book shows across the United States.
It is the strong editorial preference of Stacked Deck Press to find a Black, male-identified book designer for this project, and we will prioritize consideration of applications from Black men for this position. However, we will also consider the work of book designers of other ethnic backgrounds and gender identities for this project, if for any reason their work best meets our editorial criteria.
It is the goal of Stacked Deck Press to have this book ready for print no later than Spring of 2021 and available for purchase no later than Summer of 2021.
