If you haven't done so, I'd strongly suggest reading the book. There's a lot
of information on technical details you might like to know about. This
question for example is discussed in section
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/html-chunk/ch04s02.html#svn-ch-4-sect-2.1 (read the sidebar/grey box).

This isn't covered in the book (to my surprise), but yes, Subversion stores
it's data as differences to some previous version. Note that it uses this
scheme for both text and binary data, since it doesn't - internally - make a
difference between the two.
