I recently found a set of Compact Discworld novels in an second hand book shop; here is a picture from amazon to give you an idea -
Each book measure around 3.5in or 90mm square. Between the four book in the set they basically make a cube.
Given the 5 books in FO:E I am sure the same trick could be pulled, even if they ended up a fraction larger - say 4in square.
In my head I have labelled it Fallout: Equestria - The Little Pip Edition.
The downside to this is that the entire series would have to be reformatted accordingly, which is a lot of work. I have attempted to do a personal print of my own FO:E story, Ouroborous, and the time it took to set it all out was... well lets say at least a week for just 160'000 words.
However this method should be a: cheaper to print, b: cheaper to ship, and c: could be sent inside a miniature memory orb! (I love the idea of having a 3D printed orb that you keep them safe in, and for other reasons which I wont say cos spoilers.)
Well, that's my speech, now what is your response?
Actually, formatting a book is pretty fast. Use OpenOffice, create templates for chapter page, TOC, etc, assign blocks of text to templates, done. Going through and manually formatting each page is a nightmare, especially if you decide to reformat it later.
