The aim of this study is to introduce the structural diversity between printed books and e-books; and to demonstrate the way the design of the book changes due to transition from printed media to electronic media and the factors that caused these changes. The book design processes and the limitations of the media are varied as well as the reading experience. The design experience in printed books acquired in centuries is insufficient for e-books in terms of obtaining the best reading experience. It is not possible to have the same approach of book design for these two media because medium, preservation, distribution, page layout, reading direction, display and description of a page show differences. In this context, the change in book anatomy and the evaluation of the way the changes in organs of the book are reflected in its design are important in terms of the future of book design. While book replaces itself in new environments, the meaning of the word 'design' has also changed especially in terms of book design.
