There are some questions on formatting seforim, what programs to use etc.. but I was wondering if I could ask the following question:
I am writing a sefer with my own chiddushim on the parasha, and also a collection of "pearls" of commentaries, like old-seforim or seforim that are not often quoted. I am writing it in Microsoft Word, and would like to know if there are templates for seforim.
For example, most seforim have their first pages decorated like this:

Does anyone know why most seforim have pages designed like a column and if there is a template one could use for his own sefer?
