Template documentation (for the above template, sometimes hidden or invisible)

The {{Book}} infobox is for use in any article about a real-world book. Some parameters are optional and can be left blank. If undefined, these optional parameters will not appear. The recommended image size is a width of 250px so that it will completely fill the infobox without increasing its size. This template was initially borrowed from, and future additions based upon, the Book Template at the Forgotten Realms Wiki.
