I need to reduce the vertical space up the title of the only front page. I'm using the book class and specifically the titlepage enviroment. \vspace{-2.0cm} doesn't work... Any suggestion?

    If you are using the titlepage environment, you are setting stuff up by hand. Are you at the top of the page? If so, use \vspace*{2cm}. If not, please provide a minimal working example. – Johannes_B Apr 10 '15 at 21:56

Do that with the titling package: it defines a \droptitle length which you can choose at will. Example of use:


\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} %
\usepackage{lmodern} %
\usepackage[top=33mm, bottom=38mm, left=26mm, right=20mm, showframe]{geometry} %

\droptitle = -20mm
\title{A Subtitle}%
\author{Author names}
