Web pages are the most complete and functional version because JavaScript lets you sort the tables and link from the contents or references. Start with the primer and the workshop games, then the slideshows of election and budget simulations. Statistics pages show the actual effects of different voting rules in the stable democracies.

PDF versions are more beautiful and concise.
One is made just for screens on phones, tablets or laptops.

Others are designed for printing.

The simplest is just a flat sheaf of A4 letter-size paper, stapled on one edge.

The hardback size helps you print it as a beautiful booklet. (We use construction staples to penetrate the 34 page spine and make it wide enough so the title shows.) A4 letter-size

The pocket size is more handy and cute but tricky to make. (It needs ways of cutting the b4 legal-size printout in half and saddle binding it — we use a rotory trimmer and a long-reach stapler, but sissors and clips would do.)

The abridged black and white version is easy but ugly. You need just 7 sheets of A4 letter paper and a plain stapler. It prints well on black-ink printers and copiers. Other versions look better in color. A4 letter-size

A teacher's edition has room for notes if printed on b4 legal paper. The Power Point outline also includes discussion notes. Workshop handouts can print on A4 letter paper (no cuts or folds) with plain columns, or a more colorful style.

Covers printed on heavy card stock are nice for hardback and paperback size booklets.  The paperback size includes voting cards.

If you would like more numbers and logic with fewer pictures, Democracy Evolves is again free to browse or print.  It prints in B&W on the front and back of four letter-size A4 sheets.  It can be corner stapled with no cuts or folds.  The first page has the introduction to the primer; the other seven add to it at a first-year college level.
