Title Page

[French: Page Titre]

This section should be called "Title Page" and be made a Heading 1.

A common mistake is to confuse the cover page (often on the book jacket) with the title page. The title page is found inside the book, and it consists of:

  • Title and Subtitle
  • Author, and information relating to author
  • Publisher

Remove extra title pages.

Some titles have two title pages. We only need one title page formatted as described above.

Q: When a book has a cover page, should we give it a "heading 1" that says Cover Page? When a book includes a summary of the work, what heading would this be given? To offer some context, the book I am working with (A Boy Named Queen) includes the summary that would be on the dust cover; in this particular case, the text appears on what would be the front inside flap of the dust cover. (So sorry for my non-technical language!)

A: Usually we delete the Cover Page image (as there's usually no content other than title and author, which is often already on the Title Page). In the case of A Boy Named Queen, the Cover Page is on a book jacket that has a summary of the book. We can keep the summary and put it at the end of the book (before Terms of Use) with a Heading 1 called Book Summary. See also Back Cover.

Q: We Rise Again has a title page with a bunch of images on it.

Two questions:

1) The subtitle is above the title on this page. Should I instead put it in the Title Page as "We Rise Again: More Stories of Hope and Resilience from Nova Scotia During the Covid-19 Pandemic" ?

2) What should I do with these images? Since they don't seem entirely decorative, I'm thinking of cropping out the four images and inserting them into the Title Page (with alt-text). I've never seen an edited title page with images like this, though, so I'm not 100% on this move. The logo I would replace with text and I would not include the plaid background.


  1. Yes!
  2. They are all decorative. So you can remove them. And yes, replace the logo with text.
