Over the past decade, emojis have become a language unto themselves. Sometimes, just understanding a text conversation requires an understanding of contextual clues we now take for granted. In this way, emojis provide a perfect example of the oddly fluid nature of communication.
If you’re fascinated by the deeper meaning of emojis, you’ll love EMOJISM from ECH Creative Publications. This cheery, eye-catching coffee table book is full of general design inspiration, charming infographics, and fun facts about emojis. For example, you might not be surprised that the scream face is inspired by Edvard Munch’s classic painting, but had you ever really stopped to think about it? If you’re looking to boost your mood, slow down, and appreciate the small details of design we see every day, EMOJISM might be just what you’re looking for.
For now, you’ll have to either live in Vietnam or speak Vietnamese to access EMOJISM, but ECH hopes to publish the book internationally by the end of the year. In the meantime, you can pre-order EMOJISM here.
