# Creating empty back cover page

In defined a document with a conditional background, this should place ornaments only in \mainmatter pages and exclude the title page. These are the lines with the relevant code:

This's working even if the condition is somewhat redundant (in my opition).

Now I need to add a back cover page with editor logo (but also a blank page is fine) but without ornaments ... I tought to do so modifying the conditional background but as long as I can see I'm not able to do so. I tried to modify the condition in several ways but all I got are compilation errors. This's the document structure:

\documentclass[dvipsnames,a5paper,twoside,openright,italian,12pt]{memoir}

\input{defines}

\author{Me}
\date{2016}
\title{Title}
\editor{Editor}

\begin{document}

\frontmatter

\mytitle

\tableofcontents

\include{Preface}

\mainmatter

\include{Chapter01}

\include{Chapter02}

\backmatter

\newpage
\thispagestyle{empty}
\myback

\end{document}


How can I fix this? I need a condition to exclude ornaments from the back cover page and I nedd this page to be an even page so it can be the last page on a booklet.

• I noticed that option openright interferes forcing the back cover page to open in the right and thus forcing latex to place extra page(s) to force it to be in a odd page that obviously lead it to be NOT in the back cover. – weirdgyn Aug 22 '16 at 12:39
