Ellen cuts paper

Book machine

Posted in Uncategorized by Ellen on June 19, 2010

A proposal for a print on demand printing system designed for research and work documents.

My aim was to make books such as study textbooks become less precious, encouraging people to make a book their own and engage with the material. I also wanted to encourage an easier way of reviewing work and editing it physically.

The system would print on a long concertina of perforated paper, whilst printing page numbers, title and author on the reverse. The end product allows the reader to actively work with the text, move it around and book mark the edges of the paper.
