Last year we blogged about the Espresso Book Machine that was unleashed in the US, finding its way into college (and other) bookstores. Now the first has arrived in the UK and is printing on demand in Blackwell's as reported in the Guardian. Purchasers simply select the book of their choice and wait a few minutes for it to be printed and bound. One on our campus might help perk up the local bookstore - how about it? It only costs £175,000 after all.
