Have you ever wondered what a book is or why it came to be? Have you ever wondered why it looks the way it does, or what will happen to the book once we've all plugged into the digital world? Although we are comfortable with the idea and image of the book, defining "the book" is no easy task. In order to do so, we must trace the origins of its physical form, its readership and its content. Once we see where the book has been, we will be able to get a better idea of where the book is going.
