A D'ni book press, taken by Gehn to Riven.

The Guild of Bookmakers or Book-Making Guild was one of the Major Guilds. Their Guild color was a very light yellow. They were responsible for making blank Linking and Descriptive Books.

The process of making those special books to function was a secret closely guarded by the Guild. This involved making paper from a specific type of wood, cutting a tree in a certain manner, and immediately treating it with chemicals. It was then shredded and boiled into a pulp, which was added more chemicals and some other organic fiber.[1]

The Guild was almost destroyed by Outsiders during the Mee-Dis War, actually orchestrated by conservative factions.[2]

One of the last Five Lords during the Fall of D'ni was a Grand Master of the Bookmakers.[3]

Gehn was apprenticed to the Guild of Bookmakers.

On Riven[]

Gehn re-established the Guild as one of the five Guilds of Riven, apparently tasked with cutting trees of the Jungle Island and creating books for him on the Crater Island. In an icon display in the Beetle Room, they are seen collecting paper leaves falling from a tall tree. Although they deforested a large portion of the island,[4] Gehn had a hard time until creating his first working book.

Gehn considered questioning closely the Guild Master of the Bookmaers about security issues.[5]
