The feature of Mook is that it is large and emphasizes visuals.

The National Publishing Association Publishing Science Institute's "Annual Publication Index 1985 Edition" cites the following three points as the characteristics of Mook until the early 1980s.

  • Magazines are basically not in stock by publishers, but Mook is sold on order like books with the intention of selling them over the long term.
  • MagazineReturnsDue to the deadline, the bookstore has a limited period of time, but Mook has no return deadline.
  • The content is roughly divided into three types: "the same content as the special edition or separate magazine," "the same one theme," and "the same as the book."

Ryosuke KawaiIs "Verification of Publishing from the Defeat to the Present 1945-1995",1990 eraAs of the second half, he listed six features of Mook.

  • Magazine distribution can be used by using a magazine code.
  • The price is also cheaper by issuing more copies than books.
  • As a general rule, advertising revenue can be expected for books that do not contain advertisements.
  • OutsourcedEdit productionIt is possible to reduce the production cost by.
  • The sale date, number of publications, and price can be set more freely than magazines.
  • It can be sold for a long time without a return deadline.

Regarding the return deadline, not only magazines but also books have a return deadline.But,Iwanami ShotenAs of 2006, most of them are (free to return).

Magazine codeThe reason why some mooks do not have a mark is that new magazine codes have stopped being added.Such publishers make books of the same title a de facto magazine in the form of monthly publications.Such books may also contain advertisements similar to magazines (such as reader gift sweepstakes).
