Rob Matthews is one such smart guy. He has print Wikipedia in hard cover version which contains over 5,000 pages and it’s a compilation of just over 400 articles, all picked from Wikipedia. This hard cover version of Wikipedia is 1 ft 7 inch high. Do you know what Rob Matthews did is just printed out 0.01% of Wikipedia’s total pages, so you can buy and read it offline.
