Human script culture is not limited to texts of learning and entertainment. By the use of script and print technology to communicate and preserve, societies have grown. Graphic messages pervade cities as commercial and communal signs, and the long dependance on print in society is shown as well by all the ephemeral products of job printing as by the symbolic position of the book in religions. This survey of central concepts of book history serves as an introduction to a museum of printing and book culture in Lund, Sweden.
