Emoji šŸ³ book …

  

The book Moby Dick (Herman Melville) probably considered by some to be the greatest book written tells of a great sea adventure and of human determination.

I recently discovered that in 2009 Fred Beneson (data engineer) had a light bulb moment. Why not turn this great book in English literature into the future of modern expression … Emoji! At first he did consider translating the bible into emoji.

Emoji’s are used in text, emails & social network … šŸ’» šŸ“±  šŸ‘€

Influenced by how modern cultures, language & communication relies a lot on digital technology, he set about fund raising, then contracted thousands of people to translate one sentence each into emoji. Then a vote took place, the best ones entered into the book.
Example of text –
Call me Ishmael …

ā˜ŽļøšŸ‘Øā›µļøšŸ³šŸ‘Œ

The Library of Congress added the book to it’s massive collection of great classics. 
Very interesting …

What do you think?
