If Wikipedia were a book


Ever wondered what Wikipedia would look like if it were fully printed? Well, ⌘-P (that’s Command key and P for you Windows™ operating system followers out there), a freshly-made organic smoothy to detox, 5000 pages, and a couple of hours later:

2,532 of Wikipedia’s best articles are ‘featured articles’. Rob Matthews, the artist behind the idea printed 5000 pages from Wikipedia’s featured articles and bound them together into a book. It took a total of two weeks. I especially like the front hardback cover with the subtitle “The Best of”. It just goes to show that Wikipedia is better suited as an internet resource rather than in a book form.
