[texhax] book documentstyle, and pstricks

I have two unrelated questions.
1. In the book documentstyle, is there a macro for creating a preface
or other front matter
that precedes the table of contents, and perhaps appears on pages with
numeration? I found in the TeX Companion a reference (in the Babel
section) to \prefacename, but my version of LaTeX (downloaded recently
in connection with TeXShop) doesn't recognize a "preface" environment.
2. Is there more detailed documentation than in the TeX Graphics
Companion on producing letters in pstricks
like the "LATEX" one on p. 112? I want to generate a title on the
title page of a book in the kind of very large letters that appear in
that example. When I attempted to mimic the code given there, I got
letters only slightly larger than those using \Huge inside the title,
(1) if included in the title (as a pspicture, centered) it put all of
the rest of the material below the middle of the page, while if I put
it outside the title, then I got my letters at the top of the page and
the rest of the stuff off the page.
Thanks for any help.
