# Can the title of a book be slightly modified on the cover?

For example, the real title is "Cooking vegetables: Beans, carrots and spinach". But on the cover that would be graphically punchier as:

Cooking vegetables:

• Beans
• Carrots
• Spinach

No comma and no "and". I would want the full title - "Cooking vegetables: Beans, carrots and spinach" - on the title page and in everything else that refers to the book, page headings, ISBN title, publicity.

• Monty Python's Big Red Book has a blue cover. Don't let little things bother you. – EvilSnack Jul 9 '17 at 3:52
