Hi, Julian

I uploaded to github a cover I designed and created with ConTeXt some time
ago for a book I typesetted called “Cultivando o bem” for a buddhist
It is quite a complete example and illustrates the power of ConTeXt.
The comments in the code are sparse and not exactly detailed as you wish,
but I hope it will be useful to you.
My OS is linux and I use a Makefile to generate all the necessary files.

You can access the code at:

style file in ConTeXt | Random Determinism where the writer explains things
bit by bit but importantly, offers a summary of the code at the end. I
probably don't need the lengthy explanation but the summary of code is most
helpful - except that it is not about a book cover:-)

wiki, but from time to time I need something else, and right at the moment
I need a bit of guidance for a book cover, and an example might help.

Todas as coisas fatigam o corpo, salvo a música, que não fatiga nem o corpo
nem seus membros, por ser descanso da alma, primavera do coração, distração
do aflito, entretenimento do solitário, e viático do viajante.
