You probably saw the news today that On Demand Books (http://www.ondemandbooks.com/), maker of the Espresso Book Machine has teamed up with Xerox on an on-demand book kiosk. 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. With this announcement, On Demand Books will sell the Espresso Book Machine connected to the print engine component of the 110-ppm Xerox 4112 monochrome copier/printer. 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 book block is printed on 8.5” x 11” sheets and is then united with the cover, perfect bound, and trimmed. The price for the Espresso Book Machine, including the 4112, the finishing capability, and related software is around $125,000.
