Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Problem with cover

Hi Jacques,
I don't see why the cover page does not have the author name.  I copied your template 
and sample info element, and it works for me. My cover page includes "Jacques NAME". 
The template named 'front.cover' is called in the context of the book element, so the 
select statement should work relative to that context.

I're right !

I have a first page with my picture, a blank page, the page with the book's title and 
the author, then the copyright page.

After thinking about it the DocBook standard recto title page, I think It's the right 

But I can't figure why the first page does not print the author name and the book's 
title. Is it possible? Or did I have to make a picture by my self for this?

Thanks in advance for your time,
