How to Create a Title Page


You can create a title page for a report, essay, or book. If you're creating a title page for an essay or report, the title page may include your name, the date, title, class and instructor's name. If you're creating a title page for a book you want to publish, however, it should include "the title, subtitle, author and publisher of a book," according to Joel Friedlander (The Book Designer). Since the title page says a lot about you, it should be easy to follow and look professional.

  • Create your title page in a word application of your choice. You can add it to an existing book (after the front cover).

  • Use a legible font (preferably in the same font you used in the remainder of your book).

  • Type the book's title in large, bold letters and press the "Return" key. Then add your subtitle (if you there's one) in a smaller text size, then bold it.

  • Press the "Enter" key a number of times until you are close to the bottom of your page. Then type your name. Use approximately the same text size you used for the subtitle.

  • Triple-space and type in the publisher's name and location.

  • Select the text on your entire page and center it. Adjust your page if it runs to another page.

  • Proofread and spell-check your work, then save the file.
