Showcase of beautiful title page done in TeX

TeX - LaTeX Asked on January 3, 2022

The book is mostly meets by the Title Page. Default TeX maketitle are simple and minimalistic.

I’m looking for examples of Title Pages:

  • complex – have different formatting;
  • beautiful and awesome;
  • available online;
  • and, finally!, with TeX sources available.

I think such examples would be a great inspiration and motivation stuff!

Hope it's OK to share my own example – the title page I created, inspired by this very thread, for notes I took in an algebraic geometry class a few years back.

enter image description here

TeX source:

documentclass{amsart}
usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
usepackage{afterpage}
usepackage{tikz}
usetikzlibrary{fadings}

begin{document}

This is just my little collaboration. It's not as professional as some examples and the code is far from elegant. So feel free to edit/adapt and improve.

First a more traditional style. Many old books have a title page that look similar to this. I'v used tcolorbox and tikz with calligra font just for fancy.

My second is certainly not classic looking. Here i've used only tikz.

My humble contribution- I made this for the, 'Program Review' that we have at our college. The background image it uses can be found here, but of course you'll probably want to insert your own :)

The question LaTeX3 and pauper's coffins discusses various ways to implement a famous title page by Tschichold in LaTeX:

The picture above shows the various relationships that this design implements (the arrows are overlayed on a picture of the original).

The implementation (using expl3's coffin concepts) is given in Is there no easier way to float objects and set margins?. The LaTeX3 reimplementation then gives this (without trying to use exactly the same fonts):

I find the titlepages of the ConTeXt manuals to be visually very pleasing. A few of them involve randomized elements. The source for some of the manuals is available at this svn mirror.

In answer to the question Creating a titlepage, Harish Kumar and azetina provided the following nice title page:

enter image description here

usepackage{geometry}
usepackage{xcolor}

Here is another example:

enter image description here

    begin{abstract} 
An abstract is a brief summary of a research article, thesis, review, conference proceeding or any in-depth analysis of a particular subject or discipline, and is often used to help the reader quickly ascertain the paper's purpose. When used, an abstract always appears at the beginning of a manuscript, acting as the point-of-entry for any given scientific paper or patent application. Abstracting and indexing services for various academic disciplines are aimed at compiling a body of literature for that particular subject.
    end{abstract}

This is an example derived from the document »Some Examples of Title Pages«. It is not the most spectacular one but should be a good starting point.

  end{titlepage}
end{document}

In opposite to the document I did not define a command but simply put the necessary code into a titlepage environment.

The appendix Section A of the document has important information about all necessary stuff for creating the title pages.

I have few examples to show. You can download these from Here, Here, Here, and Here. These are originally Peter Wilson's titlepage examples that I have changed the examples little to work with xepersian package to typeset Persian documents.

Several examples from the 4th archive:
