How could it work?
A customer could approach a book station and ask for a bespoke edition of her favourite book.
The book station would then get in touch with the author and with the publisher, informing them of the opportunity, and negotiating the terms & conditions for the bespoke edition.
Or the author and the publisher could already be part of the bespoke books network, in which case all legal and financial details would already be agreed on.
In either case the customer would be informed about the costs for the bespoke edition and could then decide whether or not to buy it.
In order to avoid fraud, each book would be registered under a specific number, and a certificate of authenticity would be issued along with the edition.
There will be more on bespoke books later.
