General information

There are three LaTeX document classes (mccover, mcdust, and mcdiss) for standardized covers for publications from the Centre for Mathematical Sciences. The mccover class for A4-sized covers, and the mcdust class for Book sized dust covers have been transformed into packages allowing the cover os dustcover to be included in the same file as the main document. They all work independently of the mcfonts package.
