Capitalization of titles

I thought only the first letter of titles was capitalized in French. For example, in a catalogue, the title of the book "Gabrielle Roy: La détresse et l'enchantement" is written with only the proper name and the first word of the subtitle in capitals.

Thank you for your feedback.

Here is a very interesting link to a French website on how to write titles of books.
