Da notare la libreria capsail leggio ed il testo scritto senza spazi in capitale rustica. Leggio con libri catenatiBiblioteca Malatestiana di Cesena. Incunabolo del XV secolo. Si noti la copertina lavorata, le borchie d'angolo e i morsetti. Insegnamenti scelti di saggi buddistiil primo libro stampato con caratteri metallici mobili, Le macchine da stampa a vapore diventarono popolari nel XIX secolo. Queste macchine potevano stampare 1. Le macchine tipografiche monotipo e linotipo furono introdotte verso la fine del XIX secolo.
Hartla prima biblioteca di versioni elettroniche liberamente riproducibili di libri stampati. I libri a stampa sono prodotti stampando ciascuna imposizione tipografica su un foglio di carta. Le varie segnature Album) rilegate per ottenere il volume.
L'apertura delle pagine, specialmente nelle edizioni in brossuraera di solito lasciata al lettore fino agli anni sessanta del XX secolomentre ora le segnature vengono rifilate direttamente dalla tipografia. Nei libri antichi il formato dipende dal numero di piegature che il foglio subisce e, quindi, dal numero di carte e pagine stampate sul foglio. Le "carte di guardia", o risguardi, o sguardie, sono le carte di apertura e chiusura del libro vero e proprio, che collegano materialmente il corpo del libro alla coperta o legatura.
Non facendo parte delle segnaturenon sono mai contati come pagine. Si chiama "controguardia" la carta che viene incollata su ciascun "contropiatto" la parte interna del "piatto" della coperta, permettendone il definitivo ancoraggio.
Le sguardie sono solitamente di carta diversa da quella dell'interno del volume e possono essere bianche, colorate o decorate con motivi di fantasia nei libri antichi erano marmorizzate. Il colophon o colofone, che chiude il volume, riporta le informazioni essenziali sullo stampatore e sul luogo e la data di stampa. In origine nei manoscritti era costituito dalla firma o subscriptio del copista o dello scriba, e riportava data, luogo e autore del testo; in seguito fu la formula conclusiva dei libri stampati nel XV e XVI secolo, che conteneva, talvolta in inchiostro rosso, il nome dello stampatore, luogo e data di stampa e l' insegna dell'editore.
Sopravvive ancor oggi, soprattutto con la dicitura Finito di stampare. Nel libro antico poteva essere rivestita di svariati materiali: pergamena, cuoio, tela, carta e costituita in legno o cartone. Poteva essere decorata con impressioni a secco o dorature. Ciascuno dei due cartoni che costituiscono la copertina viene chiamato piatto. Nel XIX secolo la coperta acquista una prevalente funzione promozionale.
Ha caratterizzato a lungo l'editoria per l'infanzia e oggi, ricoperto da una "sovraccoperta", costituisce il tratto caratteristico delle Album) maggiori. Le "alette" o "bandelle" comunemente dette "risvolti di copertina" sono le piegature interne della copertina o della sovraccoperta vedi infra.
Generalmente vengono utilizzate per una succinta introduzione al testo e per notizie biografiche essenziali sull'autore. Di norma, riporta le indicazioni di titolo e autore. I libri con copertina cartonata in genere sono rivestiti da una "sovraccoperta". Oltre al taglio "superiore" o di "testa" vi sono il taglio esterno, detto "davanti" o "concavo"e il taglio inferiore, detto "piede". I tagli possono essere al naturale, decorati o colorati in vario modo.
In questi ultimi casi, si parla di "taglio colore", nel passato usati per distinguere i libri religiosi o di valore dalla restante produzione editoriale, utilizzando una spugna imbevuta di inchiostri all' anilina anni del XX secolo.
Riporta solitamente titolo, autore, e editore del libro. Sovente riporta un motto. Assente nel libro antico. I primi incunaboli e manoscritti non avevano il frontespizio, ma si aprivano con una carta bianca con funzione protettiva.
Nel XVII secolo cede la parte decorativa all' antiporta e vi compaiono le indicazioni di carattere pubblicitario riferite all'editore, un tempo riservate al colophon. In epoca moderna, le illustrazioni e parte delle informazioni si sono trasferite sulla copertina o sulla sovraccoperta e altre informazioni nel verso del frontespizio.
Nel libro antico i "nervi" sono i supporti di cucitura dei fascicoli. I nervi possono essere lasciati a vista e messi in evidenza attraverso la "staffilatura"oppure nascosti in modo da ottenere un dorso liscio. Nel libro moderno i nervi sono di norma finti, apposti per imitare l'estetica del libro antico e conferire importanza al libro. Se esse fanno parte integrante del testo sono chiamate illustrazioni. Esse hanno una numerazione di pagina distinta da quella del testo; vengono impresse su una carta speciale, quasi sempre una carta patinata.

Greg: You thought, "I've been told I should draw the biggest circle, but what I'm gonna do is ride around aimlessly on a bike whilst badly spinning a hula-hoop. And then I'm gonna crash, accidentally notice there's another circle on the floor and try and claim that as part of my attempt.
Have you got anything different to add? James: [Hopefully] My eyes are circles? Iain: "You may not touch the sand, done that. You may not move the bucket, done that. You may not leave the room, fuck it, let's do that as well!. Greg: It doesn't matter how ornate the grandfather clock is, the pendulum draws the eye.
The Gadfly : Rhod Gilbert in series 7. As he and Greg have a long-standing friendship, Rhod took as many opportunities as he could particularly with the prize rounds to embarrass and taunt Greg as much as possible.
It backfired on him, however; Rhod later admitted that because he hadn't really watched the show and didn't understood the format, he didn't realise that Greg actually was genuinely acting as a judge, and that by focussing more on winding Greg up he was sabotaging himself.
He acknowledged that if he'd used his friendship with Greg more constructively, he could have probably done much better in terms of points. Although considering some people already complained about their friendship being an advantage, maybe it's better off the way it went.
Greg himself clearly enjoys winding up the contestants, especially those who are tantrum-prone and inclined to take the tasks more seriously than perhaps they should be taken. He also delights in picking on Alex and trolling him at every opportunity. Alex also performs a subtle, low-key version of this during the recorded tasks. His tone is never anything less than mild, helpful and innocent, yet his contributions frequently tend to either state the obvious, irritatingly point out any shortcomings or errors in a contestant's attempt, given unhelpful advice along the lines of a Mathematician's Answer or an unhelpful recitation of "everything is in the task", or comment on the contestant's attempt in a way that strongly hints they've made a mistake somewhere but he's neither willing nor able to point out what it is.
One could be forgiven for thinking that he's doing so deliberately to wind them up and put them off-guard for entertainment purposes. Alex: All the information is on the task.
Jo: You always say that! It's so annoying. Alex: When do you think you might start building? Sarah: Look, mate, give me four hours to chop down a tree, and I'll spend three hours sharpening the blade.
Later, during Lee's attempt Lee: Abraham Lincoln said, "If I had four hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first three hours sharpening my axe. Greg: It doesn't work like that— this isn't the Good Samaritan. We make the rule, Sausage Gloves!
Greg : Right, and you don't like flights of fancyNoeldo you? Greg : Now these are intelligent people, they're not just gonna steam in and just start popping balloons. Alex : No, because they can make a plan, they can get something.
Greg : They're just gonna think about it. Alex : Yeah. So, do you want to start with Dave and Sara? Greg: Initially, [Daisy] suggested that Richard's disgusting for offering up lascivious goods [ Daisy took a moral high ground, and then, let's say it as it is, tried to get off with him. Frank : Someone'll take the first 45 minutes realising the teabags are better wet.
Cut to Romesh, with dry teabags by his feet Romesh : Just realised I should probably wet them. Romesh: See, you think the cake is the blooper, right, and you think "Oh God, that was bloody funny! Out of nowhere! Oh my days, that's such a surprising and entertaining blooper! And if anything, they're almost too method in the way that they carried that out!
I thought it was brilliant! Roisin: That should be your reaction! Greg: I would have probably got to those layers, but I was too busy with "Oh, there's this really bad acting, oh, they're not doing it themselves, oh, they've missed the actual accident. It is a lot shitter than I thought it was gonna look, that is the honest truth. And then there was none, and we had to defend that dogshit. And I feel I gave an impassioned speech, but I didn't believe a word of it. Josh: I agree with Romesh.
Greg: I've written down "nightmareish, creepy" and then "strangel attractive. Greg: I hate to be the guy to break it to you, but it is now time for a commercial break. Greg: "When we separate someone, it's for one of two reasons - 1: It's gone very well, or 2: it's gone very They had 10 minutes to plan what they'd use, and 20 minutes to build the volcano.
Iain and Joe both used cola and Mentos to get their volcano to erupt, the former used lots of Mentosthe latter using about seven overall to both make their eruptions. Sian made a pre-erupted volcano, and added sparklers to the top of it to mimic it erupting, Paul basically attached a bicycle pump to a tube and added in a reactant to cola we never find out and forces the bubbly lava through a tiny hole at the top of his volcano.
Lou made a clay volcano, set various sweets and pills on fire, and stood back. Despite his best efforts, Iain and Sian get 2 points, Paul gets 3 points, with Joe and Lou getting 5 points each. Making a Spectacle of Yourself : James Acaster in Series 7 has a pair of yellow shutter shades as part of his outfit for some of his pre-recorded challenges. The Man in Front of the Man : On a meta-level. Alex is the show's creator and develops the tasks, but on the show he takes the part of "assistant" and Greg takes on the ego trip of sitting in the big chair, the job of judging points for the tasks and determining whether a competitor's attempts at Loophole Abuse are valid, and the pleasure of bullying Alex.
Maneki Neko : They appear in parts of series 8, as it had an Asiatic theme. Manipulative Editing : Is often joked about in the online outtakes, in which Greg will often make a comment along the lines of "That's not making it in [to the final broadcast edit of the show]".
This is usually for entirely valid reasons a lengthy tangent that would bump up the run-time without really adding anything, or some off-colour jokes that would probably create some difficulties regarding broadcast guidelines, etc. But now, imagine it on the editing room floor.
Joe: These people know the truth! Greg: Right, [Rhod] can have one point for a start. Rhod: [protesting] Oh come on — Greg: You've had your money's worth out of that picture, you prick. Alex: Up next: they're Russell and Alice. They're cool kids, and this is what they did Nish: I can feel the wind on my buttcrack. Alex: I can see the wind on your buttcrack. Greg: Rob Beckett is the winner of five luxury shoeboxes, a prize that he told me in the break he thought was rubbish! Mel: But I don't know what fucking size everybody else is going to draw!
Race Against the Clock : Most of the challenges are done with a fixed time limit to complete in, e. Starting with Series 6, some timed tasks have additional stipulations that make the task more difficult where the contestants aren't allowed to see any clock and must work out the running time based on intuition. Without Knowing Why - Magic Pie - Motions Of Desire (CD include getting to the Taskmaster House and kissing the Taskmaster portrait as close to 30 minutes as possible note both Asim and Tim misunderstood that part of the task as racing to the Taskmaster house and kissing the portrait as quickly as possible, and placed last and second-last respectively "The Old, Soft-Curved Padlock" and inflating as many balloons as you can and popping them all in under 10 minutes, with any balloons remaining unpopped past the minute mark disqualifying a contestant note Jo and Katy were both disqualified in this round because Jo had one leftover unpopped balloon that she missed and Katy hadn't started popping any balloons until just after the minute mark "Don't Like Them Go Bang".
Rage Breaking Point : In Series 7's "The Pendulum Draws The Eye", Rhod Gilbert completed the "find the sock with the satsuma" task by finding a satsuma in the kitchen and stuffing it into a sock at random.
