Maybe get it printed on heavy olde off-white paper, with a classic cloth hardcover, gilded fore-edges, and a built-in tassled bookmark. No one is claiming it hasn’t been. These pages will remain online in perpetuity—I hope they will serve as a useful introduction to Common Lisp for folks who are curious about Lisp but maybe not yet curious enough to shell out big bucks for a dead-tree book.
