Library Love: Anatomy Of The Book
Image via thefutureofpublishing. Like bodies, books display infinite variety and at the same time are all basically the same; they share a common anatomy. Pieces of paper are folded and grouped together into signatures. If you pull out any hardcover book and look at the top edge near the spine, you will see these little groupings of paper. The signatures are sewn together, which you can observe as a number of threads running down the middle of a signature. After sewing, a piece of backing material cloth or paper is glued to the signatures to hold them together.

But on our time today an eBooks, blog and journal are considered as a book now. Have you ever seen a book without a title? I doubt you did. Every book has their own title, they may not be unique but they will have a title on their front page. A title signifies or is the main topic for a certain book.
A, B. Title, Name of the book. Author, Person who writes the book. Publisher, Company who prints the book. Illustrator, Person who draws the picture for a book.

Books have been published for thousands of years and on thousands of different subjects. Books are separated into sections, or parts, to make reading and finding the information you are seeking easier to find. The cover of a book is the first thing the reader will see and is often one of the things that entices a reader to read a certain book, despite the common phrase "never judge a book by its cover. On the cover you will often find the title and author of the book you are reading. Covers are found in both fiction and nonfiction books. A title page gives important information about the book itself.
