[U13 cover image] The Unicode 13.0 core specification is now available in paperback book form with a new, original cover design by Huijun Shan. This edition consists of a pair of modestly priced print-on-demand volumes containing the complete text of the core specification of Version 13.0 of the Unicode Standard.

Each of the two volumes is a compact 6×9 inch US trade paperback size. The two volumes may be purchased separately or together, although they are intended as a set. Please visit the separate description pages for Volume 1 and Volume 2 to order each volume in the set. The cost for the pair is US $29.58, plus shipping and taxes (if applicable).

Note that these volumes do not include the Version 13.0 code charts, nor do they include the Version 13.0 Standard Annexes and Unicode Character Database, which are all freely available on the Unicode website.
