I have seen such a beautiful preamble (got the PDF from on of my studentfriends and need help to create such a beautiful titlepage. The black bands are to make the picture anonymous, to hide the identity of my friend.

But I just need such a beautiful titlepage for my instructors. No one of us has the preamble anymore :(

Kind regards

and thank you very much in advance.

Is it allowed to ask such a question in this forum?enter image description here

  • You can use tabularx package and tabular for the header and a center environment with small capitals \textsc or \scshape and font dimension switches (e.g., \large) for the rest.

This one uses microtype for the letter spacing.

  • but what should I do to get headers, footers and pagenumbering after this front page? Commented Apr 26, 2014 at 21:01
  • @user254805 Remove the \pagestyle{empty} and just put above your titlepage \thispagestyle{empty}. And please do us a favour and change your username to something more telling than "user254805". Commented Apr 26, 2014 at 21:04
  • Why did you use \begingroup \endgroup rather than { and }? I notice that both work fine.

  • @AFeldman They are synonymous. \begingroup...\endgroup feels more like a LaTeX environment and is easier to spot in the code whereas {...} is almost exclusively used to group arguments. Commented May 14, 2016 at 14:54

    @AFeldman That is unfortuately wrong. Their sole purpose is grouping. But \begingroup and \endgroup can be unmatched within {}, so for example {\begingroup...}\endgroup. For further detail read the TeXbook. Commented May 15, 2016 at 9:34

For the header you can use a tabular (or tabularx) environment. For the rest just a center environment with \scshape and a few font dimension switches.
