# Referencing a figure on the front page

I have a title page with a nice picture on it. Now I have to give the references of this picture. I am not sure how I should do this, cause I wouldn't like a [1] etc. to be on my front page next to the picture. Does anybody know how I could still include the reference in my Bibliography? Thank you very very much!

• Please provide an MWE (from \documentclass... to \end{document}) showing what you have tried. As it is we have to guess and I, at least, am not good at that, – Peter Wilson Jun 11 at 18:23
• I'm not sure how on topic this is for this site as its not really about TeX and friends but about how to give a citation in general. However, it isn't uncommon to see references for front covers etc. either on the next page or on the back of the book. You can do this by putting the \cite{label} command where you want the [1] to show up. – Willoughby Jun 11 at 18:35
• If this is a book, a descriptive reference would be appropriate in a credits or acknowledgments chapter in the back of the book. Then it wouldn't be referenced by \cite, but by suitable text. – barbara beeton Jun 11 at 19:22
• Maybe I should precise my question. Is there a way to have the reference in my bibliography without [1] somewhere in the text? – Elene Jun 11 at 19:41
• Are you looking for \nocite{key}? – Fran Jun 12 at 5:39
