The pagenumberp(G) of a graphGis defined as the smallestnsuch thatGcan be embedded in a book withnpages. We give an upper bound for the page-number of the complete bipartite graphKm,n. Among other things, we provep(Kn,n)≤⌊2n/3⌋+1 andp(K⌊n2/4⌋,n)≤n-1. We also give an asymptotic result: min{m:p(Km,n)=n}=n2/4+O(n7/4).
