Title page

This always appears on the right-hand page of the first full spread of a book (page iii), and carries the title, subtitle, author name and publisher details (comprising the imprint, publisher’s name and/or colophon). Whereas the cover aims to attract the reader/buyer, the point of the title page (even if decorative) is to clearly identify the book, its author and publisher.

This definition is extracted (and expanded on) from the book Getting Published: A Companion for the Humanities and Social Sciences by Gerald Jackson and Marie Lenstrup. It was first referred to in the blog Getting Published in a post on the requirements and costs of self-publication.
