What You Should Know About Resources This Year
Talking about front matter, if there is one thing that we want you to know about it, that would be the fact that it refers to the first section of the book and the shortest part as well, plus it is oftentimes called as the preliminary matter or the prelims. In addition to that, we want you to know as well that front matter comes on different from as it can be as simple as a single title page or it can be multiple titles pages like the foreword and the preface, to name a few. When it comes to the things that you can find in the front matter, it is actually dependent on the kind of publication being published and to further your knowledge about this, we write down some of these possibilities for you to get to know of.
Since you are already reading this article, we assume that you are interested in this particular topic, thus we want to announce that the remainder of this page will be dedicated to the presentation of front matter examples, hence we want you to keep on reading till the end.
The first in our list that we will be introducing to you is the half title and when we say half title, we are actually referring to a page that has only the main title of the publication itself. In this particular page of the front matter, you will not see the name of the author as well as the subtitle since they are omitted from there.
If we have a half title, of course, we also have the title page and in the title page, you will be see the full title of the work as well as the subtitle (if they have subtitle), the name of the author and the illustrator as well if applicable. Dependent on the type of book being published, there are other things that might be included in the title page like the date of publication, the name and address of the publisher, notices about safety, information regarding copyright, warranties, ISBN, disclaimers, notice of edition as well as the number of printings, among other things.
Now that we are finished talking about the title page and the half title, let us move on to briefly discuss the dedication page, which is know for being a part of the front matter that is allotted for the dedication message written by the author of the publication towards someone they dedicate the entire publication too.
Aside from what we have already stated above, another one that you should know of as an example of front matter is the epigraph and speaking of epigraph, this pertains to the quotation that is included by the author which is relevant yet, not essential to the publication itself.
We have here in our list the table of contents which is one of the most common thing you will see in a publication that has chapters and pages and the table of contents is something placed in the middle of the front matter.
