Book as an object is an arrangement of the scripts that embody the idea and experience consist of words that contains meaning. Book consists of the cover, and all the content that symbolized with the layer of papers, the thickness, the books title and the authors on the cover and on the side of book. Scripts initially only found on the rock or a piece of clay, but as the time goes by and the needs, its changed from the rocks and clay turned into the sheet of leather, leaves, and wood. By the time, leather, wood, and leaves then no longer used and now paper comes to mainstream media. A collection of paper united in numbers we know now as a book. According to the evolution, physically of a book already has changed several times but the function still remain as a medium to read and written something. The fact is, we need to realize that the role of books during human history would be the same, that is a knowledge transfer media, either by means of a scientific writing, novel, a fairy tale, and scripture.
