print on demand ....

I have periodically sounded off about the use of print on demand technology to make available out of print books.

I now have another example - I was searching for a copy of Strabo on AbeBooks, and the search threw up some copies available from BookDepository - all print on demand.

Apart from the arguable lunacy of having a print on demand book shipped from the other side of the planet, such a nice example of selling useful low volume texts in paper format.

Of course that begs the question that it should also be available as an e-book, but so far an electronic version is proving elusive ...
