```Dear Uschi,

just use the standard makeup for your titlepage.  It automatically flushes to a right page in a double sided document.  Also, content should *always* start on a right page.  That is to say, your »about the book« text should also go to a right page.

Cheers, Henri

\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]
\starttext

Here goes some text about the book
\input knuth

\startstandardmakeup[top={},align={middle}]
\blank[2*big]
{\tfd How to do this in Context}
\blank[3*medium]
{\tfa The author}
\blank[2*medium]
{\tfa July 26, 2005}
\blank[3*medium]
\stopstandardmakeup

Here goes the content
\input knuth

\stopalignment
