Welcome to our guide on how to copy books in Minecraft. This guide will walk you through the process of copying a book in Minecraft so that you can have multiple copies of the same book. This can be useful for things like creating a library of books or for creating backups of important books.

What You Need

To copy a book in Minecraft, you will need the following materials:
– 1 piece of paper
– 1 book
– 1 pair of shears

First, open your crafting table and place the paper in the center slot. Then, put the book in the top middle slot and your shears in the bottom middle slot. This will give you 3 copies of the original book.

The Basics of Copying a Book

In Minecraft, you can copy a written book by using an anvil. Copying a book will allow you to make backup copies of your work, as well as edit the author and title. Here’s how to do it:

1. First, open your anvil interface by right-clicking on an anvil with your book in hand.

2. Next, place the book in the left slot and three pieces of paper in the right slot.

3. Finally, click the “Copy” button at the bottom of the anvil interface. This will copy the text from your book into the three pieces of paper.

More Advanced Book Copying

If you’re looking to copy more complex books in Minecraft, you’ll need to use a more advanced technique. This technique allows you to copy books with DESCRIPTIONS, ENCHANTMENTS, and other complex book features.

1. First, make sure you have a crafting table placed down.

2. Place the book you want to copy in the top left slot of the crafting table (see image below).

3. In the middle slot of the crafting table, place a blank book. This will be your “output” book – the one that will contain the copied information from your input book.

4. Finally, in the bottom right slot of the crafting table, place an ink sac. This is what will be used to “copy” the information from your input book into your output book.

5. Right-click on the crafting table to open the interface (see image below). Your input book should be in the top left slot, with your output book in the middle slot and ink sac in the bottom right slot.

6. In the top right corner of the interface, you should see a button that says “Copy”. Click this button to copy all information from your input book into your output book!

Tips and Tricks

If you want to copy a book in Minecraft, you’ll need to use the /clone command. This command allows you to copy blocks and items in the game. You can use this command to copy books from one location to another, or even from one world to another.

Here are some tips and tricks for using the /clone command:

– Use quotes (“) around block names that have spaces in them, such as “bookshelf” or “redstone block”.
– Use the relative coordinates when possible. For example, if you’re copying a book from your inventory to a chest at (0, 64, 0), you can use the coordinates “~ ~1 ~” instead of “0 64 0”.
– The “/ clone” command can be used to copy entire buildings or structures from one location to another. Just be sure to use the correct coordinates so that you don’t end up with a mess!


Q: What is the easiest way to copy a book in Minecraft?

A: The easiest way to copy a book in Minecraft is to use a mod that allows you to do so. There are many different mods that offer this functionality, so you should be able to find one that suits your needs.

Q: Is it possible to copy a book without using a mod?

A: Yes, it is possible to copy a book without using a mod. However, it is much more difficult and time-consuming. We recommend using a mod if you want to copy a book in Minecraft.


In conclusion, it is possible to copy books in Minecraft, but it is not a straightforward process. You will need to use the command block to first create a clone of the book. Then, you will need to use the clone item to place the book in your inventory. Finally, you will need to use the ‘copy’ command to create an exact copy of the book.
