# Drawing the following table

How can i produce the above table in latex? The first column width i want to be small. The second and third and fourth i want to be of desired size. Is it possible to do it. Also I want thick lines for column seperator.

The examples here doesn't help me: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Tables

• IMO, this isn't a pleasant table design. The examples in the LaTeX Wiki are prettier. Jun 4, 2013 at 12:23

For thicker lines, you can (for example) set \arrayrulewidth=.3ex before entering the tabular. However, it will make all lines (horizontal and vertical) of that width.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{p{.5in}||p{1in}||p{1in}||p{1in}}
\hline
\multicolumn{1}{|l||}{S. No.} & Book Name & Author &
\multicolumn{1}{|l|}{Publisher}\\
\hline
a & b & c & d\\
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
