February 5, 2019 Getting Emojitional
By Erika Church
The truth is we communicate in a lot of different ways and one is the emoji. Emoji first appeared on cell phones in Japan in the late 1990’s. These days they are a staple of communication…even my septuagenarian dad sends me messages littered with emoji
So why am I getting so emojitional?
Emoji Dick: or, The Whale is an emoji translation of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. It took over eight hundred people 3,795,980 seconds of work to create the translation. And while the Library has over 126 items about the great white whale there is only one with this kind of emojition.
