PDF Reference

Does anybody know a good book or web reference which explains the exact pdf structure (despite the official PDF Reference from Adobe)?

While I don't know of a specific title that will meet your needs, I found several related titles by doing a search for "pdf" at Barnes & Noble. Check that same entry in Wikipedia as well.

Most likely you're not going to find anything that explains the scema just yet unless it's in one of the books you find. That much detailed info available from public sources generally takes about two years to really come together.

Keep in mind that PDF has several versions. I'm assuming you're interested in the latest version.

The PDF Reference from Adobe is interesting but imho it's sometimes not clear how it is meant. Perhaps there are some special pdf forums where that stuff is discussed.

For an ISO standard the pdf structure isn't much covered in the web or books (despite some colorful click and play instruction for Adobe Reader something ...).

Altough PDf is an open standard, the ecosystem around it is much like that of a proprietary standard. Your best best is probbaly to read the source code of an open source pdf library in your favorite language.
