This might be cheaper than paper, ink, electricity, your time, and a

This was from the Gimp FAQ:
 Is there a user manual?
 Yes. It is available in HTML form, and in PDF.

But it seems the PDF is 2.4, not 2.6.

I'm in the same boat, so I hope I'm stepping lightly.

There are tools on Linux to convert from various formats. And Windows
too. I'm think'n download the documentation, or it might already be
installed as part of Gimp's help, and run it through one of these
tools to create a PDF format from html.

For the raw Gimp documentation, I'd just like to mention Asciidoc. It
allows you to write documents in text and process them (python) into
html, docbook, pdf, and more. I've followed the google support list
and there was a thread about an author using it for an OReilly book,
who also created a web site. If it would help, in any fashion, the
link is: http://www.methods.co.nz/asciidoc/
