    One thought on “The Story of Emoji”

    1. This was a gift to my mom, and I figured somebody should at least open it. And hey, now I know that there is a book called Emoji Dick, retelling the story of that big white whale entirely in emojis. Knowledge is power, yes?

    2. As a quick read and a coffee-table conversation piece for yourself or your favorite emoji fan, The Story of Emoji isI'd use an emoji here, but ironically they don't work in reviews. To see which one I used, check out my review in The Tangential.

    3. It is also a interesting book about emoji. This book tells how emoji invented by people and some interesting history of emoji. I think nowadays everyone use emojis to express their feelings, but not many people know how they come from, so everyone should read this book to know more.
