ASCII ArtASCII Art is a form of monochrome art and graphics create only using the standard fixed pitch characters in the ASCII character set. This type of art dates back to a period when bitmapped displays (and printers) were rare, and most computers could only display (or print) a limited range of characters.
There are many variants of ASCII art. For example, similar types of art based on using other character sets, involving color characters than ASCII, or using variable pitch characters (although the appearance of these tends to be highly dependent on the font and typeface used). Although these variants are no strictly speaking ASCII Art (since they involve non-ASCII characters or attributes), the term "ASCII Art" is often used in a general sense to refer to all forms of computer text art.
Below are some examples of ASCII art:
