Crowdsourced Swift Book to Be Published

Simon & Schuster is planning to publish a crowdsourced book about Taylor Swift’s 10-year career, the publisher announced Sunday. The book, which will be an oversize illustrated volume, will feature magazine profiles and other clips about Swift. The company said it would hold a contest for one fan to become an “honorary author” on the book jacket and receive $10,000. Fans can upload a video of up to three minutes to make their case as Swift’s most devoted fan. Simon & Schuster will also hold a contest to design the cover.
