The most demanded features for our Wikipedia books were color inside and hardcover outside. It's now a reality. As of a few days ago, you can now order books in hardcover and with color content. We're very excited about these new features, because it allows you to make books that are not only customized, but also even more beautiful and resistant. They simply look good in your bookshelf.If you want to make one of these books, there's a link on every Wikipedia page.
I can't help but giggle. The information in the Wikipedia articles generally came from books, and now it's going back. Leaving aside the circle of life comment I could make, they've moved information from the least usable form (hardback) to the most usable form (digital) and now back again to the least usable form. That's not the way to go.
Edit: One commenter pointed out that there is reference data that is better used in paper than digital. This is true. But, this content in particular isn't worth having as a hardback. It's already been filtered into a form that works better as digital.
And to be honest, hardbacks are bought for their appearance, not because they will be used. These books will most likely sit on the shelf and not be touched.
