The Espresso Book Machine

I’m curious about this.

I’ve heard about these for a few years now. I’ve even seen video of them operating. I think they are quite noisy and they smell like…something. Maybe ink and paper?

Here’s a video:

(I chose this one because it starts out playing EINE KLEINE NACHTMUSIK:, and you can print my book EINE KLEINE MURDER on the machine! I don’t think it plays the music while it prints, though.)

Here are my two books that are available on them. (The only two I can find.)


But here’s my question. Has anyone ever used one? Has anyone ever seen one?

What’s your opinion, if so.

I've seen one at the Harvard Bookstore in Cambridge. It produces perfectly fine paperback copies of books!
