Holy Nonsense 2017 Edition

Available both as a screen friendly online edition and preformatted for home printing and binding, the 2017 edition of Holy Nonsense was the first public release for this project. It remains available here as a legacy file for those interested in seeing how the project has evolved. Some errors in typography and judgment remain in this edition that have been corrected in later releases, and the online file is not very screen-reader friendly.


Holy Nonsense works are released as pages or page blocks. A full list of every multiple page work included in Holy Nonsense 2017 is linked here.

Designed for viewing and reading on tablets and screens, this edition is probably the one you’re looking for. Best efforts have been made to ensure this pdf is compatible with most reader software, but your mileage may vary. 

Mirrors are available on principiadiscordia.com and archive.org.

Designed for home printing of physical copies, this edition is not suitable for reading on screens. Download the zip file and print each pdf using “duplex” or “on both sides” setting, flipping on short edge. Each pdf is one section that must be folded in half, then stack your sections and bind the book as you see fit. Email QGP directly for print questions.
