      Themes can override these styles by using more specific styles to override e.g. the Snap theme uses SCSS like this:

      // Print style guide for book
      #page-mod-book-print {
          font-size: 18px !important;
          font-family: $font-family-serif !important;
      }

    Description

      At present printing a book is controlled by hard coded CSS (see https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=220147#p972743) and defaults to Times Roman and can be pretty ugly, while the book display is controlled by he theme.
      Suggest: provide a way for the user to control the way a book prints (eg font, styles), maybe from the way the book appears.
