Emoji Dick

Category : Blog

With emoji catching becoming ever more popular since their first introduction in Japan as emoticons it was a matter of time until someone decided to make an entire book out of them, no really. 

As an experiment Fred Benenson succesfully funded a Kickstarter campaign the book Moby Dick by Herman Melville has been succesfully translated into Emoji Dick, a full retelling of the story using only emoji. 

The transalted setences were crowdsourced and voted upon to ensure people would be able to understand the whole story without having to read any words. The book is available as a soft cover black and white book as well as a hardcover colour book although at £25-£154 it might be a bit steep for anyone who isn’t an avid fan of emoji/Moby Dick or doesn’t have a large amount of cash to splash on what is essentially a joke.
