One of the ideas with the way of publishing books through distributers like Blurb, is flexibility.
Today print-on-demand (POD) has a very good book shelf quality, and is in small publishing series of books a good way of thinking in environmental terms. Each time a customer clicks the »buy« button, a book is printed and distributed directly.
No big bunch of offset printed books, stored in a warehouse.
No masses of paper used.
But of course there is a breaking point, should the demand of a book ask for big volumes, we will print it in ordinary offset technique.
As the market for digital distributed books is constantly growing rapidly, JSD is also exploring the ways of making good photobooks available in ePub file format, as well as iBooks.
