Self-publishing on the Espresso Book Machine
Books On Demand offers authors and publishers the opportunity to print just enough copies of their booksRead more
Books On Demand is located in the Philippines office of the Asian Development Bank. It operates the only Espresso Book Machine in South East Asia, a machine capable of printing, binding, and cutting a book in ten minutes or less – an entire printing press in one compact package.
The EBM is a book-making robot, and your vehicle to millions of books. It prints books from a growing catalog of over 7 million titles, from previously inaccessible works available in Google Books and other public domain databases, to popular titles from a number of mainstream and academic publishers.
The EBM can create a library-quality, perfect bound, 300-page paperback book in roughly four minutes, indistinguishable from paperbacks produced by major publishing houses. It replaces the centralized supply chain of distribution of physical books – essentially unchanged since Gutenberg – with a radically-decentralized, direct-to-consumer distribution model. In other words, global search capability with local print fulfillment.
