This isn't ebook news, but I thought somewhat interesting. Yesterday RR Donnelly announced that they would print books for Penguin. FYI, publishers rarely own the actual printing presses anymore. The actual making a physical book is often contracted out to a third party. From the press release:
R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company today announced an agreement with Penguin Group (USA) Inc. to provide the majority of its digital printing and binding requirements. Under the terms of the agreement RR Donnelley will produce Penguin Group (USA)’s digitally printed adult and young readers’ trade hardcover, trade paperback, mass market paperback books, bound galleys and advanced reader copies.
