Today, books are everywhere, an indispensable part of human life. Books are treasures of knowledge from ancient times to the present. So, in order to get books to readers, there is an extremely important step that is publishing. To publish a bank of books, a publisher is required. Around the world, with the aim of honoring book publishers, Book Publishers Day is born and celebrated every year on January 16th.
First, man had to develop writing. Even then, there were centuries in which literacy was limited to priests and scribes. Without people to read books, commercial publishing companies could not exist. Even after literacy became more common, most books were created by hand once. They are more like objects of art than the mass-produced books of the modern world. However, in the 15th century, Johannes Gutenberg invented a method of printing using movable type, ink and paper, and everything changed.
Gutenberg Press has made it easier than ever to print books in bulk, and without the errors that hand copying often makes.
By the 19th century, publishing companies had largely won the battle to publish what they wanted within limits. Publisher functions have also changed. Instead of handling everything from printing to sales in-house, publishers started outsourcing. The printing companies created the books and the stores handled the sale to consumers.
Publishing technology has changed continuously over the centuries, but the 20th century development of computers and the internet has changed it even more. Writers can set up their own publishing house, package their books, and sell them online as e-books or in print.
