Portland State has one of three on-demand publishing machines in country

The Oregonian reports that “Portland State University just got one of three machines in the country that will give professors an affordable way to produce on-demand textbooks and  frustrated authors a quick way to turn their novels into print.

“The university has teamed with Hewlett-Packard and Lulu, an online self-publishing service, to set up a print-on-demand machine called Odin Ink. The sophisticated small roll press cranks out books behind a counter on the upper floor of the university's bookstore. Anyone can publish a 300-page paperback book with a color cover for $11.95. The bookstore will publish anywhere from a single book to thousands of copies. Books with color pages cost more, starting at $18.95 for the first 100 pages.”
