Much like Discogs and Filmogs, the master - in this case ‘Work’ page - serves to group together all individual editions of a book title. We hope that as the Bookogs database continues to grow, this view will create a more structured and organised overview of how many versions of an author’s Work exist. Here’s an example of how it looks in action: https://www.bookogs.com/work/399094-hey-nostradamus
For the purpose of Bookogs, a Work is the artistic creation (e.g. novel, short story, poem, play), while the book is the physical, printed manifestation of this Work. A work can be printed and recreated several times; for more popular Works it’s likely there will be many versions of the book in print. Or a Work may appear in many different books, for example, The Complete Works Of Oscar Wilde, or The Complete Works Of Shakespeare.
