Proposed is a system for creating and viewing compact "pocket books" which are printed on demand. An electronically based filed system allows the user to peruse through many different titles. Upon selecting a title, the document is imaged on an approximately 5 inch wide xerographic printer. A specific embodiment may include a Delfax/Dennison small label printer whereby, a book is continuously printed on thin paper (approximately 11#). The output document is automatically wound on a half-inch core and subsequently placed in a cassette that provides for a viewing area. A manual lever or an adjustable motorized drive system advances the scroll at a velocity equal to the reading rate of the user.
