Is there is a pocket-size Gemara? Soft cover preferred. This would be a great invention if it doesn't already exist.

I saw a new set in a bookstore in 5 Towns about 2.5 months ago. I almost bought it. Kinda wish I had. – Seth J Feb 17 '12 at 5:34
I'm also wondering...the Gemara is by far the most studied Sefer by Jews, and they don't even have one officially? – Hacham Gabriel Feb 17 '12 at 19:09
If you have a mobile device, you can get a PDF of any Masechta from hebrewbooks.org. Plus there's an artscroll app for iOS on the way. – Yaakov Kuperman Apr 9 '12 at 21:18
@YaakovKuperman – How do you get PDF of an entire Masechta from the site? I can only figure out how to download a single amud at a time. – Adam Mosheh Nov 13 '13 at 19:58

Historically, after WWII the Vaad Hatzalah printed pocket sized Gemaras for survivors in the refugee camps.

+1 for the historical reference (and the rest of the answer as well)! – Seth J Apr 6 '12 at 12:39
I think the Oz Vehadar is the one I saw in the 5 Towns. Looks nice. – Seth J Apr 6 '12 at 12:44
The link is broken for the Blum Edition. – Adam Mosheh Nov 13 '13 at 19:59

Shouldn't it be spelled מצוה הבאה בעבירה? – Adam Mosheh May 9 '12 at 20:28
