Taking the Leap into All-POD

James Bridle has launched Bookkake, a print-on-demand (POD) publisher focusing on transgressive literature. From booktwo.org:

… Bookkake is not in the fortune-building or the fortune-breaking business. Print-on-demand and direct sales mean that we cut out much of the warehousing, distribution, and discounting costs that are currently causing so much trouble in the trade. Order a book from the Bookkake website and it is printed and shipped directly to you.

POD editions can be ordered in the UK and US with free shipping. In addition, all Bookkake titles are available as free ebooks in DRM-free PDF, EPUB and MIDP formats:

… I firmly believe that by supplying interesting readers with the best version of what they can get elsewhere for free, I’ll be rewarded with customer appreciation and loyalty.

    I’m sorry, taking government money, ripping off Olympia and selling our books for twice the price is “transgressive?”

    Well, OK, folks at St. Mark’s had a very different definition. But if O’Reilly’s cool with that sort of thing, there are couple of IRC channels y’all might want to take a gander at. Maybe I’ll get a link if I do something with PDF scans of overpriced textbooks.

    /Disclaimer, only one of the five (translation by Eric Kahane, original publisher’s brother, no less), constitutes direct infringement, but four of five have been available from us for years. Quite lovely.
