```Hi Kieren,

```
```Anyway… I've added a

\bookpart {
\paper { oddHeaderMarkup = ##f }
\markup \null
}

before the \bookpart containing the score, and now the margins are as I would
have hoped, as are the page numbers (because my titling is based on
bookpart-page-number).
```
```
```
If the task really is to treat 1 as a left page, I don't see an option other than tweaking the page number output routine. Unfortunately, all of this seems to be quite hard-coded, so I did:
```
\version "2.21"

#(define number-format-original number-format)
#(set! number-format (lambda (number-type num . custom-format)
(if
(equal? number-type 'arabic-shifted)
(fancy-format #f "~d" (1- num))
(number-format-original number-type num custom-format))))

\paper {
page-number-type = #'arabic-shifted
first-page-number = 2
print-first-page-number = ##t
}

\new Staff {
\repeat unfold 400 c'2
}

which has the dubious benefit of being both brutal _and_ ugly.
