For a non-commercial book

http://www.lmtgtm.org/gtm/book/librogtm.pdf (beware: 6MB)

I needed a full page without margins for the frontispiece. I used the
sidecap package with the wide option, and then, for this particular
case,

\thispagestyle{empty}
\begin{figure}[h!]
\vspace*{-8.5pc}
\begin{wide}
\hspace*{-6.6pc}\includegraphics{frontispicio_cred_8pt}
\end{wide}
\end{figure}

Best,
