There are a number of excellent authors producing Print-On-Demand commentaries on Greek and Latin texts. The authors of the books linked below were the first that I am aware of to use the single-page format (Greek, vocabulary, notes) in a POD, the first to give a presentation on the use of POD at a major conference for Classicists, the first to sell POD books at a major conference for Classicists, and the first to submit their POD volumes to BMCR for review.
