Blog to Book Project — Epigram

Sometimes, in place of a dedication, an author will include an epigram. An epigram is a pithy statement that either has something to do with the inspiration behind the book or the content of the book. Many times they are written in rhyming verse.

The epigram has its own page and is typically centered and set off from the rest of the text with a different font, just like a dedication. If you include an epigram and a dedication, the dedication page comes first. Both pages will be on the right-hand side (recto) with a blank back page (verso). 

You could write your own epigram or use an epigram from another source as long as it relates to your book. 

Assignment: Write or choose an epigram.
