Preliminary pages are the pages at the beginning of a book that include the title page, copyright page, dedication, table of contents, and foreword. The purpose of these pages is to give the reader basic information about the book. The title page includes the title of the book, the author’s name, and the publisher’s name and logo. The copyright page includes the copyright notice, the ISBN, and the Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data. The dedication is a short message from the author to the reader. The table of contents lists the chapters and subchapters of the book. The foreword is a short introduction to the book, written by someone other than the author.

A preliminary page is a page in a book that comes before the main text. The most common preliminary pages are the title page, copyright page, and dedication page.

The title page is the first page of the book and usually includes the book’s title, the author’s name, and the publisher’s information.

The copyright page is the second page of the book and includes the copyright information and the ISBN (if the book is a hardcover).

The dedication page is the third page of the book and is where the author can thank the people who helped them with the book or dedicate the book to someone.

After the preliminary pages, the book will start with page one of the main text.

Preliminary pages are an important part of books because they provide essential information about the book and its contents. This information can help readers determine if a book is right for them, and it can also help them navigate the book once they start reading. Preliminary pages can also help promote a book by providing information about the author, the book’s awards and accolades, and more.

CJ grew up admiring books. His family owned a small bookstore throughout his early childhood, and he would spend weekends flipping through book after book, always sure to read the ones that looked the most interesting. Not much has changed since then, except now some of those interesting books he picks off the shelf were designed by his company!
