Welcome to The Book Maker! Long-time friends and independent booksellers Eric Wilska, of The Bookloft in Great Barrington, MA and Susan Novotny, of The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza in Albany, NY have teamed up to create a new print-on-demand service. For the last two years we have been the only business of our kind in the Berkshires and greater Capital District. The Book Makers' aim is to print attractive, well-designed books at a low cost to the customer.


The process couldn’t be simpler. You give us the digital content and cover art for your book and we’ll format, print, and bind it using the newest printing technology. Instead of traditional print runs that can number in the thousands (and often end up being stored in your garage for years), our print-on-demand technology allows us to print as few as ten copies of your book, eliminating costly up-front printing and storage expenses. For your convenience, we’ll keep the formatted book in our digital archives, so you can reorder from us over time as the demand for your book increases.

We hope you’ll consider working with us. Our collective half-century of experience in the book business, combined with our knowledgeable staffs and publishing contacts provide a unique wealth of resources at an affordable price. Still have questions? Feel free to call us at 518-689-1083, or contact us. Or, if you’re in the area, stop by and see us! We’re located next to Market Block Books at 3 Third Street, Troy, NY 12180.
