# Page numbering in words [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

How is one supposed to number pages in words?

eg: 1 → 'Page one'

• \pagenumbering{style} does not provide an option for full words.
• Ctan under the category page numberring (page-nos) does not have any package which numbers the pages in words.

A solution to the problem can be achieved using

• fancyhdr : custom headers and footers
• fmtcount : format a counter to a variety of formats (including the english word)

These packages will be used as follows :

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{fmtcount}%Page number to full english
\usepackage{fancyhdr}%Header and footer

\pagestyle{fancy}
\fancyhf{}
\fancyhead{} % No header
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}%No ruler
\fancyfoot[CE, CO] {\textit{Page \numberstringnum{\thepage}}}%Print Page and convert page number

\usepackage{lipsum}%Dummy text

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-35]%Dummy text
\end{document}
