# Suppress headers and footers for complete chapter

For my thesis, I need to include a chapter which can "stand alone", meaning it must be formatted in a way that allows the pages to be exported and be published separately.

This means, I need to get rid of the header and footer on these pages. I tried using

\thispagestyle{empty}


and it works as expected, but I don't want to set it manually for each page in my chapter.

Is there a way to extend this command to spread to all pages in the current section or is there another way to achieve my goal?

Use \pagestyle{empty} at the chapter start and switch back to \pagestyle{<normalstyle>} at the start of the next chapter. (<normalstyle> stands, e.g., for headings in the book class or for fancy if you use the fancyhdr package.)

In addition, it is necessary to set \thispagestyle{empty} at the chapter start in order to override the starting page's internal plain style.

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\chapter{bla}

\lipsum[1-12]

\chapter{blubb}
\thispagestyle{empty}
\pagestyle{empty}

\lipsum[1-12]

\chapter{foo}
