LaTeX Style

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.

Class File

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: \documentclass{blocksbook}.

All options from memoir are supported in addition to:

  • draft — puts the word 'draft' in the header, also given to memoir
  • serif — use the 'serif' font
  • headbold — use the bold font in the headings
  • bold — use bold font in itemize
  • bottomline — draw a \hrule under each page, excluding part and chapter pages.
  • titlepagenr — show a blocked page number on the title page.

Places Used

Blocksbook is currently used by Miek's introduction to Go.

Latest Changes

  • Fix the title page — a blocked page number is optionally printed.
  • Per default, don't draw an \hrule (see option bottomline).
  • Number subsection also
  • Some spacing issues are fixed
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
