Legendary publisher Jason Epstein and CEO Dane Neller have created a print-on-demand machine that eventually will allow users to choose from an enormous digital library of books, and print them on site. Espresso Book Machine (EBM) is a patented technology that can make a paperback book in minutes, at point of sale.hrough its EspressNet® digital catalog of content, books can be ordered online or onsite at bookstores, libraries, and non-bookstore retailers. Over seven million in-copyright and public-domain titles are available on the network. The technology is also ideal for self and custom publishing. By bringing print-on-demand capability to the brick and mortar retailer, the EBM allows customers to get what they want, where they want, when they want it. Drawing from the EspressNet® digital catalog of content, the EBM has access to millions of in-copyright and public domain titles. So instead of ordering an out of stock title from the publisher and waiting days for delivery, the EBM can print it while the customer waits. People can also use the EBM to print their own work, from school projects to novels to family histories.
Ultimately, the technology is intended to distribute virtually every book ever published, in any language, anywhere on earth, as easily, quickly, and cheaply as e-mail. On Demand Books, LLC is the company behind it all. Based in New York City, On Demand Books was founded by Jason Epstein (Chairman); Dane Neller (Chief Executive Officer); and Thor Sigvaldason (Chief Technology Officer). Jason Epstein is the former Editorial Director of Random House and the co-founder of the New York Review of Books, the Library of America, and the Readers Catalog. You can read more about them here.
