Magazine title added on Espresso book machines network
Well-known literary magazine, ‘n+1’ has joined On Demand Books’ growing Espresso Book Machine (EBM) network, expanding what bookstores and libraries can offer through EBM’s ‘digital-to-print at retail’ sales channel.
The EBM is the only digital-to-print at-retail solution on the market today. With the push of a button, a title can be printed with a full-colour cover, bound, and trimmed to any standard size. In a matter of minutes, it emerges from the EBM as a bookstore-quality paperback book, which the customer can pay for and walk out the store with right there and then. Content from publishers is fed to the EBM via EspressNet, On Demand Books’ growing digital network of titles (currently numbering over seven million). Much like an iTunes for books, EspressNet retrieves, encrypts, transmits, and catalogues books from a multitude of English and foreign language content providers, including public domain, in-copyright, and self-published titles.
Notably, in September 2010, On Demand Books and Xerox announced a partnership whereby Xerox will market, sell or lease and service the Espresso Book Machine worldwide. Espresso Book Machines have been placed in bookstores, libraries, universities, and other locations in the USA, Canada, the UK, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and the Caribbean.
