Lulu, a provider of on-demand printing and publishing services for books, music and art, is making available paperback-bound photo books for less than $10 each.

The product is designed to help consumers upload digital photos and produce a book quickly and easily, the company says. Books can be created “in a matter of minutes”, and there is no minimum purchase, Lulu added.

For sample books, see: “Coloring the Streets” ( ) and “Manhattan Skylines” ( ).

Books can be created at no cost using Lulu’s system. To purchase a book is $4.53 plus a fee based on umber of pages selected — 15 cents for color, 2 cents for black-and-white.
