so here’s what happens when a german professor and a designer get together to build the all-encompassing wiki database to document all the unicode type faces there are. 50’000 [sorry got that wrong] 865 characters are already up there, while unicode encodes more than 50’000 on the basic multilingual plane – [and to think that i already struggle with the latin alphabet…]. unfortunately the site is not extremly intuitive to navigate, but there is tons of interesting information to be found.
