The Unicode Standard 5.2 is now online only and can be printed freely.
For the next edition of the standard, Unicode 6.0, the editorial
committee would like to find out whether people are interested in the
ability to obtain bound copies of the standard in the form of
individually available volumes covering different selections of the
text and code charts. (Unlike in the past, Unicode 6.0 will not be
published as a single volume by an outside publisher.)

If there is sufficient interest, the text and code charts could be
delivered using Print-on-Demand technology. To prepare for that
option, the editorial committee would need to do some restructuring.
In either case, users would be able to print any part of the online
files free of charge; the print-on-demand option would simply offer a
convenient way to purchase bound copies of some or all sections of the
standard.

We have created a very brief survey that gives some options and
estimates costs for a print-on-demand version of Unicode 6.0. We would
appreciate your feedback. There is also space on the form for
comments. Feel free to forward this link to others who are not on the
Unicode mailing lists, but who might be interested. The survey will
close on February 24.

The survey can be found here: http://www.unicode.org/pod-survey
