Full Frontispiece (fʊl ˈfrʌntɪspiːs)
What is a frontispiece? A frontispiece is the part of a book that faces the title page. Though not common today, in many older books this page has decorative elements or an illustration of the author, subject matter, or scene from the book. In many ways the frontispiece acts as a blurb or synopsis of the content.
