Simon & Schuster will publish a crowdsourced book on Taylor Swift that fans will help create.

The publisher announced Sunday that it will hold a contest where fans can name the book, which will be an oversized and illustrated volume "with the feel of a scrapbook."

The book will collect magazine profiles and other various writings on Swift over her 10-year career.

Simon & Schuster is looking for "one super-Swiftie" to serve as "honorary author" whose name will appear on the jacket. Passionate fans can upload a video of three minutes or less to make their cases. The winner will be paid $10,000.

A third contest will also be held to design the cover.

Senior Editor Jofie Ferrari-Adler said he hopes "Swifties around the world" will get involved.
