colophon – Provides commands for producing a colophon

Colophons are a once-common design device by which a book (or document) designer gave some information to his readers about the design and makeup of the text. It typically includes the publisher (if not included elsewhere in the document), font size, leading size, measure, and of course font face identification. Sometimes it includes information about the tools used, as well. This package provides some highly configurable macros, with sensible defaults, for producing colophons without having to muck around with a lot of manual code.
