Yes, it's possible.

Would I want to do it? No way, except for a book of 24 pages of full-color photographs and no text. Then I might do it in Photoshop.

The thing about most "books" is that they contain linked columns of flowing text, plus generated text such as tables of contents, indexes, lists of illustrations, page numbers, and more. NONE of those is possible in image-editing or illustration programs. They are meant to be done in page-layout programs such as InDesign, QuarkXPress, and FrameMaker. And if you want running headers/footers, text variables, conditional text, master pages, xrefs, and many other book-level niceties, you must have a robust big-publication editor such as FrameMaker.
