book machine in action


  • We've got one of those here at the University of Missouri. I haven't tried it out or seen it in action, but this video makes me want to more! I wonder what sort of control you have over the margins? It would be cool to be able to make a philosophy or lit. crit. text with extra big margins, so you could go at it Talmud-style. :)

  • What's the catch? Do the savings on labor costs end up saving the consumer money after the 1000th or so printing or is it just that it provides the book more immediately?
