To have your own printed copy of the Reference Manual and Rationale for Ada 95, you don't have to print the PostScript files yourself.
Since hypertext is better than paper for reference works, you should use hypertext versions.
Both reference works have been published as volumes in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series from Springer-Verlag. They can be bought from the Ada Home Bookshop, general Ada section, or ordered at your local bookstore with the following references:
Ada 95 Reference Manual: Language and Standard Libraries, International Standard ISO/IEC 8652:1995(E). S. Tucker Taft, Robert A. Duff (eds) Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol 1246.
