What is ANSI Art

ANSI Art is text mode art created by using block style font characters like ░▒▓█▓▒░ from the IBM VGA CP437 font set that was standard in the DOS era of computing in the 90s. Using only the 16 colors available in DOS text mode with block characters and other glyphs and a lot of creativity, this format was used to create the wonderful art of the BBS era.
