Like Point → Line → Surface → Body system.
Books are Words → Sentences → Pages & Chapters → Book system.
Which part of books both contain the pages and chapters? It is the Table of Contents. I designed a book of books using the original table of contents of other publications.
I selected 20 design books, scanned their TOCs and kept the original sizes. I put the TOC on one side of each spread. To design a double page spread, I also selected some representative pages in the books and used different color dots representing different logics of my choices.
