Print On Demand
A form of book printing that utilizes digital technology so that every copy is actually an original (with no loss of quality even after thousands of copies). An author's book is turned into an electronic computer file (for example, a PDF) that contains all of the content (such as words, pictures, tables, and formatting specs). From that file, books can be published in a range of formats: hardcover, paperback, and e-books for electronic book readers.
