      After book printing, the sheets are folded by the printer or possibly by a trade binder. The folded 8-, 16- or 32-page sections are collated in sequence to make up every book. Some hardbacks and some quality paperbacks, especially those printed on coated papers (including some textbooks) have their sections sewn together.

With quality hardbacks, the sewn sections are trimmed on three sides (leaving the sewn spine folds intact), end papers are glued to the first and last sections (unless the text paper is sufficiently strong), any decorative head or tail bands added, strong material glued to the spine to reinforce the hinge with the case, and the spine sometimes rounded. Meanwhile the case is made by gluing the front and back boards (and paper backstrip of the spine) to the ??cloth?бе which in turn is blocked with the title, author and imprint in gold, silver or a range of different colours. The outer sides of the end papers are pasted, thefinished case dropped over the book (spine-side up), and the book squeezed. The jacket is printed on a small colour press, sometimes by anotherfirm. This is often laminated with clear plasticfi lm and wraps thefinished book. Sometimes the printed cover is glued to the case before binding to produce a printed paper case (PPC) or cover to board book.

The handcraft of book printing services and binding process originated in China where religious sutras were copied on to palm leaves with a metal stylus. The leaf was then dried and rubbed with ink, which would form a stain in the wound. The finished leaves were given numbers, and two long twines were threaded through each end through wooden boards. When closed, the excess twine would be wrapped around the boards to protect the leaves of the book. Buddhist monks took the idea through Persia, Afghanistan, and Iran, to China in the first century BC. Western writers at this time wrote longer texts as scrolls, and these were stored in shelving with small cubbyholes, similar to a modern winerack. The word volume, from the Latin word volvere, comes from these scrolls. Court records and notes were written on tree bark and leaves, while important documents were written on papyrus. The modern English word book comes from the Proto-Germanic bokiz, referring to the beechwood on which early written works were recorded. The book was not needed in ancient times, as many early Greek texts were thirty pages long, which fits into the hand. Roman works were often longer, running to hundreds of pages. The Greeks used to comically call their books tome, meaning to cut. The Egyptian Book of the Dead was a massive 200 pages long but was never meant to be read by the living. Torah scrolls, editions of the Jewish holy book, were also held in special holders when read. Scrolls can be rolled in one of two ways. The first method is to wrap the scroll around a single core, similar to a modern roll of paper towels. While simple to construct, a single core scroll has a major disadvantage of reading text at the end of the scroll, the entire scroll must be unwound. This is partially overcome in the second method, which is to wrap the scroll around two cores, as in a Torah. With a double scroll, the text can be accessed from both beginning and end, and the portions of the scroll not being read can remain wound. This still leaves the scroll a sequential-access medium: to reach a given page, one generally has to unroll and re-roll many other pages.
