# Titling: Unwanted Font Change in scrbook

I can't figure out why the "maketitle" font uses a different font than the selected global document font. The reason why I used the "maketitle" title is to be able to use the \lowertitleback command which is exclusive to scrbook. MWE:

\documentclass[paper=9cm:16cm,pagesize=pdftex]{scrbook}

\usepackage{imfellEnglish}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec}
\usepackage{lettrine}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\vspace*{2cm}
\begin{center}

\textbf{\Huge \textsc{My LaTeX Story}}
\end{center}
\end {titlepage}

\title{My LaTeX Story}
\author{}
\date{}

\maketitle

\end{document}


You could use

\addtokomafont{title}{\rmfamily}


to avoid the switch to the sansserif font for font element title.

If you do not want the usage of \sffamily for other font elements too, , set class option egregdoesnotlikesansseriftitles:

\documentclass[paper=9cm:16cm,
]{scrbook}

\usepackage{imfellEnglish}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[pagestyles]{titlesec}
\usepackage{lettrine}

\begin{document}

\begin{titlepage}
\vspace*{2cm}
\begin{center}

\textbf{\Huge \textsc{My LaTeX Story}}
\end{center}
\end {titlepage}

\title{My LaTeX Story}
\author{}
\date{}

Additional remark: It is not recommended to use package titlesec together with a KOMA-Script class.
