A new kind of fold: downloadable mini-books

mini-bookFor those who like virtual books but don’t want to spring for a Kindle, there might be a solution.

A small, indie publishing press called featherproof books is offering mini-books on their Web site that readers can download, print and fold origami-style into bound volumes.

They’re kind of like eBooks, but free. And in color. And require paper.

Okay, maybe they’re not like eBooks, but the concept is still cool. Even if it won’t generate any profit.

Or readers, since the printing press is basing their concept on the assumption that today’s readers are willing to waste finger effort folding books when they don’t even want to turn real pages in the first place.
