Structure of books

Depending on a book's purpose or type (e.g. Encyclopedia, Dictionary, Textbook, Monograph), its structure varies, but some common structural parts of a book usually are:

1. Book cover (hard or soft, shows title and author of book, sometimes with illustration)
2. Title page (shows title and author, often with small illustration or icon)
3. Metrics page
4. Dedication (may or may not be included)
5. Table of contents
6. Preface
7. Text of contents of the book. In many books, the text is divided into sections called chapters.
8. Index

The pages of books are usually numbered sequentially.
