Advance publicity copies are a small run of books that will be published in a larger run at a later date. Many publishers use advance publicity books to send out to proofreaders, reviewers and the media for book marketing purposes.
These are popular with large publishing companies as they may have many people to send their books out to, whereas a small publisher or self publishing author may be happy with 1 or 2 bound proofs.
Short-run digital book printing is suitable for preparing bound proofs in temporary covers for advance publicity purposes. Covers are not generally laminated and there is no setup/proof charge.
