Product description


"According to linguists, emoji may be the fastest-growing form of language in history--but their roots date back 40,000 years. This deep dive explores everything from 1963's 'original smiley, ' by American commercial illustrator Harvey Ball, to emoji's role in literature (an emoji translation of Moby-Dick) and tech (emoji- rather than digit-based banking passwords)."

--The Wall Street Journal
