The Public Domain Book Reprints Service is a fab way of grabbing e-books from places like the Internet Archive to have them printed and bound into real paper books using Lulu.com. You select the e-book title from the public domain catalogues, paste the location URL into the Request field and it’s converted and transferred to Lulu.com ready for your print on demand..uh…demand. The service takes a tiny pennies commission to cover the cost of the process bandwidth. Great idea, although hopefully as it becomes more popular we’ll see a friendlier user interface.
Anyone with an email address can place a request on this page using a link from a supported archive. Your request will be forwarded to our conversion server which will convert the appropriate book to printable form, and sends it off to Lulu.com. When the book has been uploaded, it will be made for immideate ordering and shipping, and you will receive a link to it via email and THEN you can make the decision to purchase the book. Requesting a reprint does not obligate you to buy the resulting book.
