ISBN Imprint name goes on Title Page?

HI,

 

I saw on one of the instructions on CS that our ISBN imprint goes on our Title Page?

 

Is this correct?

 

If so, what is the best way to format it (e.g. a small font, centered on page, toward the bottom)?

 

In my case, my imprint is my name, which already appears on the title page - how does one distinguish between the two?

 

As always, thank you so much for your kind assistance and guidance!

Re: ISBN Imprint name goes on Title Page?

The imprint [name] and the ISBN are two separate entities and are unrelated, other than the fact that the ISBN is registered under the imprint name. As for their respective placement, do you own any books? If not, I suggest you drop by a bookstore and have a look at a few. In short, the imprint usually goes on the title page, the ISBN on the copyright page.

However, since the imprint name and the author name are identical, it would look silly and redundant to add the imprint name to the title page.

Maaku raises a good point. I think you should consider using Crikey Publishing as your imprint. A fly imprint like that will give your book stature.
