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

\input knuth

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][pagestate=start,doublesided=no]
\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

This is the colofon

\chapter{Start here on page 3}

Scaled Full Page Image 1

An elegant option is to extend the makeup mechanism to accept the background key:

   \unprotect
   \appendtoks
     \setupbackgrounds[\v!page][\c!background=\makeupparameter\c!background]
   \to \t_page_makeup_every_setup
   \protect

Then you can use

    \setupexternalfigures[location={local,default,global}]

    \defineoverlay
      [backgroundimage]
      [{\externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=\overlaywidth, height=\overlayheight]}]


    \starttext

    \startstandardmakeup[background=backgroundimage]
      Whatever
    \stopstandardmakeup

    Next

    \stoptext


Scaled Full Page Image 2

Another way to use a full-page image includes:

  \startTEXpage
    \externalfigure[cow.pdf][width=\paperwidth, height=\paperheight]
  \stopTEXpage
