I have this code:

\documentclass{tufte-book}

\begin{document}

    \title{Some stuff\\ \& \\Some other stuff}
    \author{Me}
    \date{Fall 2014}

    \maketitle

\end{document}

The title doesn't break into three lines; instead I get an error. Is there a way to fix this?

I also want to add an image to the cover. What's the best way? Do I need to redefine \maketitle (ugh), or is there something simpler?

  • Where should the image be inserted? Between author and title, before author, after title? – Gonzalo Medina May 22 '14 at 21:57

You should set the \title, \author and \date in the preamble:

enter image description here

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\newsavebox{\titleimage}
\savebox{\titleimage}{\includegraphics[height=7\baselineskip]{example-image}}

\title[Some stuff \& Some other stuff]{%
  \setlength{\parindent}{0pt}%
  Some stuff \par \& \par Some other stuff \par \vspace{1cm}
  \usebox{\titleimage}}
\author{Me}
\date{Fall 2014}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\end{document}

Images should also be handled specially. Above I've placed the image in a box before including it in the \title.

  • That works. I'm wondering, though: in a simpler title situation (i.e., no line breaks within \title), I can set \title, \author, and \date within document and it works fine. Why do the line breaks change that? – crmdgn May 22 '14 at 23:37
  • @crmdgn: I can't do that without an error reporting that \title "Can be used only in preamble." – Werner May 22 '14 at 23:41
  • This is getting interesting. What might explain that difference? – crmdgn May 24 '14 at 15:32
