Additions:
Interfaces are designed. Interface design addresses //look and feel// but also //control// and //feedback//. Designers call the design of the interaction at the interface //experience design//.
It is designed. The book evolved over time to develop covers, page numbers, end papers, paratextual material, indexes, TOCs. These elements vary by genre: Novels generally don't have indexes.
The interface elements might have been designed for function, but they soon were given meaning. The interface elements of the page establish relationships between parts of the text: Headers and footers, margins. But also covers, back covers, end papers, spine as all part of the interface of book - and all those change when we move to digital.

Additions:
Interfaces are also places where two micro-climates or environments meet - some natural, others designed: the interface between woods and clearing, lake and land (we call the interface //the shore//), between street and yard, street and building.
The interface as illustrated by Saussure in his diagram conceptualizes points where thought and language come into contact - where the control happens.

- Look at your books.

The book interface is material. We can see it, touch it, manipulate it.
And the interface elements came not just to function but were given meaning. Headers and footers. But also covers, back covers, end papers, spine. All part of the interface of book - and that changes when we move to digital.
