Print to... a book? Answered

I have access to a printer, which can print on standard paper - but that's not what I want.
There are publishing houses (and Instructables!) that can print my text in a bound book - but that's not quite what I want, either (not yet!)

What I want is: a printer, that can take an empty, bound book (Moleskine for example)... and print in it.
Without damaging the book!

Has anyone made,or bought, such a printer?
At first I thought it would need to be some form of XY plotter, but a normal print head should do the job. The trick would be setting the page limits, holding the unused portion of the book, and to start the print at the spine.

Look into updating those printers they use to print the balance and transactions in a bank passbook, although those are phased out for online statements.
