Most of the information I found said to italicize large works and use quotes for smaller works, thus the title of an article would be in quotes, while the magazine name in italics. And a work of art seems to be more generally in italics, but a showing name is in quotes?

Frustrating. Still not sure I am resolved on this.

Most publishing programs follow typesetting rules concerning roman face, bold face, italics, small caps, and large caps. From this an editor can choose a style and that’s an arbitrary decision specific to the editor. And that’s why there’s a variance between publications.

This paragraph could be set in many ways and, if the editor doesn’t have clue about mixing typefaces, in many differing fonts.

Sarawati1’s book, Urban Spaces gives an account of how architectural design can create a community feel in inter-urban areas. She writes, “The ‘Kingston Roads Project’ shows how by opening up road access and offering an incentive through new shopping venues has opened to residents a neighborhood once sterile and cold.”
