"However, the concept of the book would seem to embody more than
information, but the exploration of relationships among data, or the search
for meaning. It seems that books as collections of information (records)
look back, books as ideas push forward the realm of human thought. This
could describe the book as art.
This is probably way off the original path, which may have been more about
bookbinding than content-- just couldn't resist."
Please don't resist!
