A Wikipedia Book is an organized collection of Wikipedia articles that can be rendered electronically in PDF format, or ordered from an associate publisher as a printed book. The book is compiled afresh each time it is downloaded or ordered, so will always reflect the latest versions of the articles.

Note: Currently (April 2018) the book generator has been disabled pending a rebuild. The old Offline Content Generator had become unmaintainable and buggy and was withdrawn to make way for a new system. As of April 2018 a candidate replacement is in development and awaiting a host platform to be installed on.

For information and help on Wikipedia books in general, see Help:Books (general tips) and WikiProject Wikipedia-Books (questions and assistance).
