Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce that the book about Lech Wałęsa, which was
prepared for Wikimania 2010 in Gdańsk, has been published at Wikimedia

The book contains biographies of Lech Wałęsa[1] in 104 languages of
the world. Every biography comes from a different language version of
Wikipedia. All the text was retrieved at the same moment - On the 1st
of March, 2010. The book was prepared by volunteers from the Polish
Wikipedia community and the whole book, including the cover, is
available under CC-BY-SA 3.0. All the authors are listed on the book's
last pages.

During the closing ceremony of Wikimania 2010 the book was shown for
the first time in public. And a few days after Wikimania, the
President of Gdańsk, Wikimania organizers and Polish Wikipedians gave
Lech Wałęsa the first copy of the book[2].

Now the book is available in PDF on Wikimedia Commons:
