Printing Public Domain Books from the Internet Archive via Print on Demand Technology

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)

Comments are welcome at code /at/ shaftek [dot] org or ia-reprints /at/ judaicaondemand [dot] com.
