This study is a set of ideas in an articulated way, in the sense of making an attempt to understand material culture, from the perspective of the artifact called book, which is part of humanity, as a practical, aesthetic and symbolic object, which also has accompanied and been influenced by technological, behavioral, social, cultural and economic changes. Characteristics that bring consequences in the form of production, development, commercialization, use and, consequently, in the habits and forms of consumption of the book by people. And so, from the concept of material culture, temporalities, experiences, practices and expectations, we sought to show how this relationship has already occurred, happens and what will happen in the future, in order to contribute to the discussion about the historical and design artifact, which is the book, an object that is widely associated with knowledge, an essential aspect for human life, which is synonymous of freedom.
