Aspiring Toronto authors now have an inexpensive way to publish their grand work.
The Toronto Public Library has purchased a $68,000 book-binding machine that will churn out ten copies of a novel, memoir, or cookbook in minutes for $145. The actual cost of any print job is based on the number of pages, and number of copies.
It’s called Asquith Press, and it has a plexiglass cover that will enable authors to watch the entire process. It will bind a full-colour cover and all the pages of a book.
The Library is also offering courses on how to properly format a book for the new machine.
