Colophon and Titles

Don’t forget to figure out a way of incorporating a title and author line into your mid-term project somewhere. You could place it in the traditional areas…on the cover, or even on an inner page. Or, if your book is less traditional in form, you might find another place for the information…on the back cover, inside back cover, on the spine alone…the options are limitless.

Many handmade books contain a colophon. Here’s a link to the Wikipedia definition.

In the case of your mid-term, you may choose to include colophon notes about:

  • Your choice of typeface
  • The origin of your papers (especially if they are hand-made)
  • Any unusual materials you have used

You should also indicate the edition number and total quantity of books in your edition.
