Colophon Section Style

Book colophons list information such as the ISBN, publishing house, edition and copyright dates, legal notices and disclaimers, cover art, book layout credits, and any significant production notes. The colophon, sometimes referred to as a copyright page, is displayed on the verso side of the title page; however, it can also be located in the book’s back matter.

Colophon syntax

To use the colophon section style, the document type must be book. The section must be a level 1 section (==), unless the book has parts.

Hide the section title

If you don’t want the section title to be displayed, use the untitled option. This option only works with the Docbook backend.

The section still needs a title in the source, otherwise you can’t assign the special section style to it or link to the section with a cross reference.
