How Does It Work? Books
Klara is fascinated by the world around her. She would like to understand where books come from and become a librarian or writer in the future. She uses every spare moment to gather information. Klara is helped by her granddad, who, with his amusing pictures, patiently answers his granddaughter's questions. Can you “take down" a novel with a piece of string and knots? What’s the difference between papyrus and parchment? What was work in a medieval scriptorium all about? Why do books need typesetting and layout? What was paper made out of in the past and what is needed to produce it today? Where does the phrase “read something cover to cover" come from? What do literary agents do? What are antiqua, serif and italic type?
Its large format and rich illustrations combining learning with fun and a great sense of humour make this book about books incredible.
