ABA will market the Espresso Book Machine(r) to member bookstores and help permission publisher titles to the network
The American Booksellers Association (ABA) and On Demand Books (ODB), the maker of the Espresso Book Machine(r) (EBM), have entered into a joint marketing agreement whereby the ABA will market the EBM to member bookstores and help permission publisher titles to the EBM sales channel.
Essentially an ATM for books, the patented EBM and its EspressNet(r) software system links to a vast network of content, enabling the instant distribution of books, on demand, at point of sale. With the push of a button, the technology prints, binds, and trims a bookstore-quality, perfect-bound paperback book, in any language, with a full-color cover, in minutes. It is an environmentally friendly technology since it eliminates shipping, returns, and the pulping of unwanted books.
