The Unicode Map Project Build Status Greenkeeper badge

A bunch of Unicode characters in a poster, on a Hilbert curve.

🆕 New in Ver3.0.0


The Unicode Map Project (Japanese: Unicode巨大地図) is an experimental project to illustrate Unicode characters (and non-characters) in a large poster, and sell them at some dōjinshi fair event such as Comiket in Japan. The version 1.0.0 was sold at Comiket 91, held on Dec 29, 2016. Its composition of Unicode characters is very featured by its arrangement, which introduces a Hilbert curve to visually span the blocks of Unicode.

The poster is developed with open source and the poster data can be downloaded for free. And also any contribution is welcomed!
