Generalized Baker maps provide one of the most fundamental mechanisms to dynamically generate fractal structures. We show that in the limit of a large number of maps, the entropy function which describes the composed system converges towards a universal entropy function which, qualitatively, depends only on the grammatical structure of the system but has a characteristic bat-like shape. We present theoretical and numerical results on the universal entropy function for different grammars.
