“The history of book printing goes back to the first bibles pulled sheet by sheet off Johannes Gutenburg’s presses in Mainz, German in the late fifteenth century. The first books were attempts to replicate the handwritten books of the time, which varied widely. Over the centuries publishers have gradually established conventions about the way books are constructed.”

An extract from Joel Friedlander’s website post… have a look at The Book Designer’s post on what makes up the different parts of a book… I consider this a good refresher in book design…
