Abstract
This report summarizes and analyzes the creation of a print-on-demand anthology from free online content sourced from The Tyee. The book, titled Harvested Here: Delicious Thinking About Local Food, was created by Tyee staff as an experiment in brand extension, reader engagement, and in recruiting new sponsors to fund future journalism on the independent, online news site. The report that follows considers the roadblocks faced by the editorial team during the course of putting “pixels into print,” and catalogues the myriad benefits the first Tyee Special Edition has brought to the publication. The report concludes with an assessment of the merits of three print-on-demand options available to publishers in Vancouver (BookRiff, Lightning Source, and the Espresso Book Machine), and considers how The Tyee will carry out future publishing ventures.
