Example usage

For example the source code of the book description at Category:Geometria by Augustin Hirschvogel is:

| Author = Augustin Hirschvogel
| Date = 1543
| Image = Fotothek df tg 0003618 Geometrie ^ Architektur ^ Perspektive ^ Polyeder.jpg
| Language = German
| Source = Scan of original book from [[:de:Deutsche Fotothek|Deutsche Fotothek]]
| Subtitle = Das Bvch Geometria ist mein Namen, All Freye Kvnst Avs Zvm Ersten Kamen, Ich Bring Architectvra vnd Perspectiva zvsamen
| Title = Geometria

For an example of the usage on a multi-image DjVu file see the implementation at: File:Three Books of Occult Philosophy (De Occulta Philosophia) (1651).djvu, the code follows:

|Author={{creator:Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa von Nettesheim}}
|Translator={{creator:John French}}
|Title=Three Books of Occult Philosophy
|Series title=
|Publisher=Gregory Moule
|Description={{en|Original 1651 English translation by [[John French (physician)|John French]] of [[w:De occulta philosophia libri tres|De occulta philosophia libra III (Three Books of Occult Philosophy)]] by [[w:Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa|Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa]]}}
|Source=http://archive.lib.msu.edu/AFS/dmc/arts/public/all/threebooksoccult/ANL.pdf  [[w:Michigan State University|Michigan State University]] Libraries: [http://digital.lib.msu.edu/collections/index.cfm?TitleID=247 Digital Collections] individual pages are also available as .GIFs from the same source
|Image=Three Books of Occult Philosophy (De Occulta Philosophia) (1651).djvu
|Image page=5
|Wikisource=s:en:Three Books of Occult Philosophy
| Other_versions = [[:File:De Occulta Philosophia Libri III (1533).djvu|De Occulta Philosophia libri III (1533)]] (Latin); [[:File:Magische Werke (De Occulta Philosophia) (1855).djvu|Magische Werke (Book II) (1855)]] (German)  

the same format would work with a multi-image pdf.
