Printed books are books that have been produced using a printing process, in which ink is applied to a printing plate, which is then pressed onto paper or another printing substrate. Printing is a method of mass-producing books, and it allows for the production of large quantities of books in a relatively short period of time.
Printed books can be either hardcover or softcover, depending on the type of binding used. Hardcover books have a stiffer cover, often made of paperboard or cardboard covered with cloth or paper, while softcover books have a flexible cover made of paper.
Printed books can be found in a wide range of formats and sizes, and they can cover a wide range of subjects, including literature, history, science, and more.
