As some already commented, Arch moves too fast for it to really be feasible
to create a handbook. Also, take in account the fact the we have recently
gone through various important changes (migrating to systemd for example),
so every handbook or guide you manage to find is probably going to be quite

What you can do, is to open the wiki pages you want and print them as PDF
files. Although even the wiki is outdated on some points, it will
definitely be of great help when installing a new system.
