The Espresso Book Machine (sometimes referred to as EBM) has been around for four or five years, but really in more of a beta state according to On Demand Books CEO Dane Neller.

The 4112 is used to print the monochrome book blocks while an internal color inkjet printer does the covers. The Espresso Book Machine can print and perfect bind books as small as 4.5” x 5.0” and as large as 8.25” x 10.5” (and any variation in between).

The price for the Espresso Book Machine, including the 4112, the finishing capability, and related software is around $125,000.
