A Book and Quill


Book and Quills are crafted with 1 Feather, 1 Ink Sac, and  1 Book in any order, as this recipe is shapeless. By right clicking, the player can write in the book. After clicking "Sign and Close", the book gains an enchanted texture, the quill vanishes, and it can be read, but not edited without mods or plugins.


How To Craft A Book and Quill


  • There is a restriction of 50 pages per book and 256 characters per page.
    • These restrictions can be bypassed by third-party editors.
  • In singleplayer, the world will pause when writing in a book.
