Print-On-Demand Book Machine Demonstration
Nov 9 2011 7:00 pm
Nov 9 2011 8:00 pm
Politics & Prose has acquired one of the newest innovations in the publishing world, a print-on-demand machine. With the push of a button, the machine prints, binds, and trims a quality paperback book, in any language, with a full-color cover, in minutes. The machine, nicknamed "Opus," makes several million out-of-print or hard to find titles available to anyone; Politics & Prose is also pleased to offer self-publishing services to would-be writers working on anything from a dissertation to a novel to a family history.
Please join us at a free event, open to the public, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, November 9 to watch a test printing, meet one of the machine's creators, and to talk with store owners and staff about Opus's capabilities. Learn how you can access 7 million titles not on store shelves, including rare and out-of-print books, or how to use Opus to create your own self-published manuscript. Watch a book printing demonstration and talk with one of the machine’s creators as well as the store staff about this exciting new addition to the bookstore.
