Guess who did this one :-) Reference to mailing list

A simple centered cover for a booklet

```
\setuppapersize[A5][A5]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

\starttext

\startpagemakeup[align=center,doublesided=no,%
pagestate=start]% we want to number this

{\bfc This should be the long title, Andreas' solution\par}

\stoppagemakeup

This is the colofon

\chapter{Start}

\input knuth

\stoptext

```

Or, another solution (which can be tuned at will), which relies on a new feature in MkIV: there is also a layout with the same name as the makeup environment and you can control the margins of your new title page environment with \setuplayout[makeupname][...].

```
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided]

%\showframe

\setuppapersize[A5][A4,landscape]
\setuparranging[2UP]

\definemakeup[titlepage]
\setuplayout[titlepage]
[backspace=2cm,width=108mm] % 148mm is the width, 20 mm of backspace,
% 20 mm of outer margin

\starttext

\starttitlepagemakeup
\raggedcenter
\bfc This should be the long, long, very long title\par
\stoptitlepagemakeup

\dorecurse{20}{\input tufte\par}

\stoptext
