In graphic arts usage, all matter other than text material, e.g., illustrations and photographs.

Art in relation to books and publishing can be defined as the creative application of creativity and imagination to book production, employing various techniques and processes in creating visually pleasing and educational books.

Book publishing can be traced back to its beginnings during early printing techniques. Books were often hand-illustrated and decorated by hand in this time-intensive, costly process. Yet, their beauty created one-of-a-kind books for years afterward.

Modern publishing encompasses an ever-expanding spectrum of techniques and processes. With digital printing now possible, publishers can produce high-quality yet cost-efficient books at scale.

Illustration is one of the more frequently utilized art forms used for book publishing, providing visual interest while at the same time providing necessary subject-matter knowledge. It can also add visual stimulation or help present information.

Photography is another form of art often employed within books, making them both aesthetic and realistic. Photos may add visual interest or provide more realistic portrayals of the subjects covered.

The design of books is another essential aspect of publishing. Cover design can make an enormous difference to their appearance and appeal; when well-designed books become attractive and visually stunning, readers are likelier to notice and purchase them.

Publishing books is ever-evolving as new technologies and processes emerge, necessitating publishers to remain up-to-date with current trends to produce books of superior quality. To do this effectively, publishers must stay abreast of emerging technology to create excellent works of literature.
