About this site

We strive to make digital editions of hard to find books that can be read, printed and bound by anyone. We process scans from around the world (mostly from archive.org) to make them lighter files, more appealing, text-searchable and indexed. We love LaTex and plain text.

To print a book, you need any DIN-A4 printer (laser recommended). “-bklt.pdf” files will be stapled two times in the middle and “-book.pdf” files (24 pages and more) glued and bound. Contact us for help in binding your books.

You can contact us to:

*for a donation of 0,04€ per page (B/W A5, perfect bound, delivery fees apply).
We are looking for printing partners in many countries to reduce shipping costs as well as donations to buy better equipment.

How to contribute

You can help on our WIPs or submit your own projects:

  1. Books you digitized yourself
  2. Rare scans or files you found
  3. Your own editions, preferably as a nicely typeset PDF with LaTeX
