Title Page Template doesn't work

Postby AleCes » Tue Feb 25, 2014 11:08 pm

Hello everybody,

I'm getting an error with one of Wilson's Title Pages.
  1. ! Undefined control sequence.
  2. \titlePM ->\begingroup \drop
  3. = 0.1\txtheight \vspace *{\baselineskip } \vfil...
  4. l.35 \titlePM
  5.  
  6. ?


Minimal example:
  1. \documentclass{book}
  2.  
  3. \newcommand*{\titlePM}{\begingroup% Gentle Madness with Printers' Ornaments
  4. \drop = 0.1\txtheight
  5. \vspace*{\baselineskip}
  6. \vfill
  7. \hbox{%
  8. \hspace*{0.1\txtwidth}%
  9. {\wb{18pt}{18pt}
  10. \begin{picture}(0,0)
  11. \multiput(0,0)(0,20){22}{\textcolor{Medium}{Q}}
  12. \end{picture}
  13. }
  14. % \rule{1pt}{\txtheight}
  15. \hspace*{0.15\txtwidth}%
  16. \parbox[b]{0.75\txtwidth}{
  17. \vbox{%
  18. \vspace{\drop}
  19. {\noindent\HUGE\bfseries Some\\[0.5\baselineskip] Conundrums}\\[2\baselineskip]
  20. {\Large\itshape Puzzles for the Mind}\\[4\baselineskip]
  21. {\Large THE AUTHOR}\par
  22. \vspace{0.5\txtheight}
  23. {\noindent The Publisher}\\[\baselineskip]
  24. }% end of vbox
  25. }% end of parbox
  26. }% end of hbox
  27. \vfill
  28. \null
  29. \endgroup}
  30.  
  31. \begin{document}
  32. \titlePM
  33. \end{document}
