1. America’s biggest losers.
Presidential Losers is an art book dedicated to all the men who tried — and failed — to win an American presidential election.
Earlier this year, Austin-based writer/director Shannon McCormick hit on a novel idea to promote a theater festival about the American presidency. He invited 75 contemporary artists, cartoonists, and designers to each create a portrait of one of the losing contenders from each federal election dating back to 1800. 
The resulting exhibition was a hit, so McCormick launched a Kickstarter project to raise funds and gauge interest in publishing a book. This gallery of failure has already gone down in history — and now it’s our Project of the Day.
