The following pages are illustrating the literacy level in the selected countries around the world. The visualization is generated according to UN Human Development Report 2009. Literacy is not only the ability to read, but also to understand. Try to feel on your own, how does the information disappear in randomness. The names of the states are turned in little puzzles.
