Chapbook: A chapbook is an early type of popular literature printed in early modern Europe. The tradition of chapbooks arose in the 16th century, as soon as printed books became affordable, and rose to its height during the 17th and 18th centuries.

When illustrations are included in chapbooks, they are considered popular prints.
