Your vignettes should be typed in Times New Roman font, size 12, and exclusively in black. Each vignette's title should be in Times New Roman, Size 12 font, black only, with no bolding, underlining, or italicizing. Make more of them! Longer titles will help the reader navigate through your book.
Occupational Titles Work titles should be italicized (or underlined). This is true for books as well as articles. In books, the title page or front matter includes the title in italics. In articles, the title should be in italics within the text itself.
Italicize the titles of big works such as books, journals, and other special names, as well as subsections of larger works such as book chapters, articles, and so on. It may be done to distinguish these titles from the body text which follows a sans serif typeface. Although this practice is now common in many cases, italics were not originally intended to convey emphasis or importance. They are called "strong" or "heavy" faces because of this implication.
In addition to books and magazines, titles can be set in italics by authors who want to give their work a more formal appearance. This is especially common in scholarly publications where it is necessary to distinguish the title of the work from its contents which are presented in a normal style page. In general, the use of italics to indicate the title of a work is an indication that the content should be treated with respect; for example, it is not used for descriptions or for footnotes. The choice of typeface also plays a role in determining how the title should be set in italics. For example, using a small cap font would make the title appear particularly important.
Journal articles and reviews are examples of texts that are usually set in italics. This is because they are titles that call attention to themselves by standing out from the surrounding text.
Article, chapter, poem, and shorter work titles are printed in roman font and surrounded by quotation marks. Book series and edition titles are capitalized but not italicized. Periodical titles are usually printed in caps only; however, some publishers may choose to print them in both caps and lower-case letters for greater visual interest.
In general, words that are part of the title should be set in full capitals, while other words within the text require only initial caps. It is acceptable to use small capitals for the beginning of sentences or for individual words within the sentence.
Titles printed in books or magazines are usually given more space than usual, so as not to interfere with the main body of the text. This is especially true of book titles, which may extend over several pages.
In academic writing, the title page shows the author's name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and e-mail address. It also includes an abstract (summary) of the work. The abstract may include up to 200 words of summary information. Methods used to analyze data, results, conclusions, and future research directions are all summarized on the title page of an academic paper.
The title page should contain two equal-sized columns of type.
Different style guides have different guidelines for italicizing and underlining titles, so you'll need to understand which to use. Titles of shorter works, such as books or newspapers, should be italicized. Short work titles, such as poems, essays, short tales, or chapters, should be surrounded by quotation marks. Longer works, such as novels or collections of articles, are usually underlined instead.
Titles of movies, songs, or dances should be in italics or quotation marks, depending on the length of the work. If the title is short, it should be italicized; if long, it should be quoted.
The names of people, places, or things other than titles can also be styled in either way, depending on the context. For example, if you're writing about someone who has two titles, they might be referred to as "Mr. So-and-So" or "Mrs. Such-and-Such".
In general, if a word is used repeatedly or refers to a category of objects, then style it in italics; otherwise, leave it alone. For example, atoms, molecules, crystals, and metals are all types of matter; therefore, they should be styled in italics (see below). Animals, people, and events are not categories of matter, so they should be left alone.
Here are some more examples: "Atoms are fundamental building blocks of matter.
