epigraphs • Add tags Information and discussion about page layout specific issues (e.g. header and footer lines, page formats, page numbers).
I would like to add a small poem or citation on the first page of each chapter, just above the chapter's title, on the upper-right side of the page. Of course, the poem is different for all chapters ! The Poem should be stylized with some "hand-looking" script font.
Many large books are doing this kind of stuff.
Here's a working code to start the idea :
How should I do this ? Any suggestion ?
You are probably looking for epigraph. Regarding the font you should choose one from »The LaTeX Font Catalogue« (perhaps calligraphical or handwritten).
Hmm, thanks for the package ! (there are so much of them !).
Currently, the default implementation places the epigraph below the chapter's title, which make a huge space between the title and the content.
I would like to put the epigraph above the chapter title (there's much unused space up there !), without changing any spacing.
EDIT : Ah ! The fun begins ! Epigraph is now above the chapter's title. I need to remove that pesky bar, and change the text font.
Sorry if I sound dumb, but I can't find an option to remove the rule in the documentation.
What command (or package option) should I add to remove the horizontal bar ?
EDIT : I've found this command to give the rule a thickness of 0pt :
However, I find it pretty strange that there isn't a simple package option to turn the rule ON/OFF.
I can't provide an example with "Vicentino", because I don't have the corresponding files on my system and I don't know where to get them at the moment. But "Lukas Swatba" from aurical looks nice.
You should read what people write here and follow given links. In my very first response you can find a link to the available fonts for PDFLaTeX. If you want to use other fonts (OTF and TTF), you may take a look at another typesetting engine like XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX.
Well, there's something I don't understand with fonts. Here's a working example, from the suggestions above :
But then, how can I use the TEX Gyre Chorus or Zapf Chancery fonts, instead of aurical and without changing the whole document ?
