Funny you should bring this up.

One project I've had on the back burner for years now is creating  
replacements for posters for Hangul and Hanja (Korean for Chinese  
characters, equivalent to Japanese Kanji or Chinese Hanzi). In  
particular there was one showing all the radicals which I found  
especially useful.

It should just be a matter of specifying the document size and the  
fonts and sizes which geometry and fontspec make trivial.

Probably you'd want to put everything into a table or series of same- 
sized boxes so that they all come out to the same size, but shouldn't  
be too difficult.
