# Epigraph on Part Page

I used the solution given here to get a nice, customizable epigraph on a part page.

However, the solution uses the command \usepagestyle{epigraph}, and because of this, the part page has a pagenumber, which it normally doesn't have. I tried getting rid of the pagenumber by for example changing \usepagestyle{epigraph} to \usepagestyle{empty}, but then the complete epigraph disappears.

What I need to do then, is to redefine the epigraph pagestyle to be exctly the same, but without page numbers. How do I do this? (I can't seem to find the definition of the epigraph pagestyle in the .sty file)

I am using the tufte-book class, which should be identical to the standard book class for this discussion.

MWE:

\documentclass{tufte-book}
%\documentclass{book}%same result
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\makeatletter
\titleformat{\part}%
[display]%
{\filleft\fontsize{40}{40}\selectfont\scshape}%
{\fontsize{90}{90}\selectfont\thepart}%
{20pt}%
{\thispagestyle{epigraph}}%
\makeatother
\setlength\epigraphwidth{.6\textwidth}

\begin{document}
\epigraphhead[450]{In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.\par\hfill\textsc{---Yogi Berra}}
\part{Test}
\end{document}

• The tufte-book class is not the same as book; please, provide a MWE. – egreg Aug 24 '15 at 11:05
• @egreg I included a MWE, the result of compiling with \documentclass{book} and \documentclass{tufte-book} is the same for me – Bernhard Aug 24 '15 at 11:18

If you only need epigraphs on part pages, this ought to work (patching the epigraph page style so its footer is empty):

\documentclass{tufte-book}
\usepackage{epigraph}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{xpatch}

\titleformat{\part}[display]
{\filleft\fontsize{40}{40}\selectfont\scshape}
{\fontsize{90}{90}\selectfont\thepart}
{20pt}
{\thispagestyle{epigraph}}

\setlength\epigraphwidth{.6\textwidth}

\makeatletter
{\let\@evenfoot}
{\let\@oddfoot\@empty\let\@evenfoot}
{}{}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

\epigraphhead[450]{In theory, there is no difference between theory and
practice.\par\hspace*{\fill}\textsc{---Yogi Berra}}

\part{Test}

\end{document}
