The book uses 66 different fonts since there is no font that supports all Unicode characters. Images from here and here.

glitchtext:

the unicode 7.0 standard has been released, and it adds a bunch of characters to the Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs block (or “new emoji” according to some in the media)
but most of these “new” characters have been around for more than 15 years, as part of the webdings and wingdings 1-3 fonts! so if you have these fonts installed then you don’t have to wait until to play around with them until your chat app is updated — you can enjoy them using the glitch text generator!
for example, the much-talked-about “no piracy” character is “#” in webdings.
