From Miek Gieben's original blog post:
A few years ago I've created a LaTeX class which I particularly liked, but looking back on it, it was getting a bit old. So I recreated the style with the excellent
memoir class for LaTeX.
The style consists out of a single class file, called blocksbook.cls. Just put it somewhere, where TeX can find it (i.e. the current directory) and use it with:
All options from
memoir are supported in addition to:
draft— puts the word 'draft' in the header, also given to
serif— use the 'serif' font
headbold— use the bold font in the headings
bold— use bold font in itemize
bottomline— draw a
\hruleunder each page, excluding part and chapter pages.
titlepagenr— show a blocked page number on the title page.
Blocksbook is currently used by Miek's introduction to Go.
- Fix the title page — a blocked page number is optionally printed.
- Per default, don't draw an
- Number subsection also
- Some spacing issues are fixed
