The main TeX typographical system' pieces have been fully described par Donald E. Knuth (see below for references). What is missing is the description of the system, that is explanations about how all the pieces fit together and, with supplementary utilities, for a whole. This is on the todo list but, for now, you will have to do with the kerTeX notes...
