Wikipedia as a Printed Book
I am sure you are all aware of Wikipedia, and probably use it on a regular basis, but have you ever considered how big this resource actually is? At the moment there are around 3,887,569 articles, this is equivalent to 1,638.6 volumes of the Encyclopædia Britannica. So what if you were to print this and make it in to a physical product?
This is exactly what student Rob Matthews has done, well 0.01% of it anyway, the results of this can be seen below.
This book has more than 5000 pages and contains 400+ of the features articles from Wikipedia. As the pictures show, this book is massive! 1ft 7inches high in fact.
Great effort Rob, although you could have maybe done with cleaning your trainers before taking this pic!
