A small project that I have been working on for a while is now public. It is intended to reprint public domain books from the Internet Archive via on demand printing technology. Here is how it works:
1. You request any public domain book from the Internet Archive.
2. The book is processed and submitted to Lulu, a no upfront fee print on demand company.
3. You can order the printed book from Lulu at cost (almost, a small under $1 fee
is surcharged to cover cost of conversion servers rented from Amazon EC2).
The project is called “Public Domain Books Reprints Service” and can be found here:
(It is being hosted by one of my on demand printing businesses)
