Half Title

Use a Half Title at the beginning of your book to display its title. In printed books, this page often precedes the Title Page.

Adding a Half Title

To add a Half Title to your book, select Half Title from the menu in Chapter ▸ Add Element. More details about adding elements can be found in Elements of Your Book.

Because Half Title pages are not common in ebooks, when you add one to your book, it will be included in your Print Edition only.


The title that’s displayed on the Half Title page will be determined by your book’s Title Info. Vellum will format the title according to the specific style options you’ve chosen so that it matches the interior of your book.
