WOW - old follow-up, but on a whim I got a quote from Kinko's for a single copy, wire-bound, clear vinyl cover, black vinyl back of a 329 page PDF file printed double side on regular 20# paper.

About $35:
   7.5 cents per page side
   and (I guess) about $10 for the binding/cover/handling

I think the "per side" price would come down for qty. greater than 1...

The book was the freely available "Unix Hater's Handbook" (google will turn it up for you, if interested).
