The title page can also be used to set the mood for a book, such as in comedy-drama stories where it may need to be humorous; and for tragedies where sadness might prevail.
The title page can also serve as an effective place for authors to add a tagline or motto that sums up their message or theme of their book. This could be something as short as “This book’s message or theme are…”
On your title page, it is also an opportunity to thank the people who made your book possible such as your editor, illustrator and publisher.
A title page must include the title, author’s name and publication information of any book or document being presented for review. Ideally, the title should be centered on the page and be large enough to easily read; author names should appear below it while publication information follows below this.
Title pages of books often provide the first glimpse of an author(s), their title and usually publisher’s information to readers who pick up a book for the first time. As this initial impression gives readers insight into whether they decide to continue reading, title pages are an integral component.
