Print-on-demand service puts publishing in reach

English professor Marty Gervais said the University has a “great service” with its new Espresso Book Machine.

“It’s basically a literary vending machine,” he said Wednesday at an event to launch the University Bookstore’s new print-on-demand service.

Operators can produce a paperback book with full-colour cover in about five minutes – printing, collating, gluing and trimming.
