Michael originally thought of the project in 2009 but ran into technical difficulties He then engaged an assistant, Jonathan Kirinathan, to aid with the programming of the code to compile, format and upload an entire English Wikipedia download The print files were uploaded to self book publisher Lulucom and are available for printout as paper volumes

Michael's motivation was to answer the question, "How big is it" For a big data entity, its size is on the threshold of what can be perceived as a collection of volumes, but not so large as to overwhelm one's senses, such as the data files of Facebook or the NSA Katherine Maher, chief communications officer of the Wikimedia Foundation, has described it as "a gesture at knowledge" It has also been described as a "futile grand gesture" Wikimedia has cooperated with the project and Lulucom has helped fund it

The task took three years, and the upload process took 24 days, 3 hours and 18 minutes It was completed 12 July 2015 PediaPress had attempted to raise money for a full English Wikipedia print out on Indiegogo in 2014, but the project was pulled Michael estimates that the printing costs of a full printout are around $500,000 The Denny art exhibit featured only a selection of actually printed volumes with about 2000 of the other volumes represented as spines on the wall The show revolved around the actual upload of the print files to Lulucom
