In January 2009, I made a cheap, simple book scanner and in April I put the complete plans online. Since then, not only did I land a laser cutter from Epilog, but better still, a number of people have built their own scanners and made incredible improvements.

Though Instructables has been very kind to me, it was time to lay the foundation of a new community dedicated to building book scanners and book scanning software. To that end, I created DIYBOOKSCANNER.ORG.

Another scanner builder, Rob, is helping moderate the community and maintain the software. We’re still working on things behind the curtains, but I urge you to come join us and help work toward the future of books.
