Emojis--we've all seen then and we've all most likely used them at one time or another, but in reality we know very little about them... until now! Emojis are everywhere, from Facebook and Twitter to the desperate texts from your mom asking again how to log into the Netflix account you set up for her. We're all familiar with the smiley face laughing hysterically, the grinning cat, and the guy with the dodgy 'stache, but what's the story behind these ubiquitous pictograms? Over the following pages, EMOJIS reveals all with a series of hilarious interviews and exposs with some of the most popular icons from the social media scene. Did you know, for example, that the couple in love emoji is now actually embroiled in a bitter divorce after he cheated on her with the princess icon? Or that in a past life the smiley with the crosses for eyes was the model for the famous Nirvana smiley face logo of the early 90s? You do now! Along with these eye-opening tales, you will also meet the pictograms that the developers never wanted you to see, like the emoji who's drunk too much and is now throwing up, the punk cat with the Mohican, or the bearded hipster smiley with thick-rimmed glasses. And if that's not enough, there's a hilarious section on misunderstanding emojis plus a guide to the best films, books, albums, and more described for you only in the language of the emoticon.

Drawing from disciplines as diverse as linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, and neuroscience, The Emoji Code explores how emojis are expanding communication and not ending it. For all the handwringing about the imminent death of written language, emoji—those happy faces and hearts—is not taking us backward to the dark ages of illiteracy. Every day 41.5 billion texts are sent by one quarter of the world, using 6 million emoji. Evans argues that these symbols enrich our ability to communicate and allow us to express our emotions and induce empathy—ultimately making us all better communicators. Vyvyan Evans's Emoji Code charts the evolutionary origins of language, the social and cultural factors that govern its use, change, and development; as well as what it reveals about the human mind. In most communication, nonverbal cues are our emotional expression, signal our personality, and are our attitude toward our addressee. They provide the essential means of nuance and are essential to getting our ideas across. But in digital communication, these cues are missing, which can lead to miscommunication. The explosion of emoji, in less than four years, has arisen precisely because it fulfills exactly these functions which are essential for communication but are otherwise absent in texts and emails. Evans persuasively argues that emoji add tone and an emotional voice and nuance, making us more effective communicators in the digital age.

This is the first book to explain the genesis and cultural significance of emoji, the world's cutest and most popular form of shorthand. If you have a Twitter account or regularly send text messages, it's highly likely that you've used or received emoji. These characters include symbols and pictograms that represent a host of everyday objects and activities plus, crucially, a selection of faces that denote a range of emotions from happy to sad, angry, confused, surprised, or tired. The word "emoji" literally translates from Japanese as "picture" (e) and "character" (moji). The Story of Emoji traces emoji from their origin as a symbol typeface created specifically for on-screen use by a Japanese mobile phone provider in the late 1990s to an international communication phenomenon. As well as a history of emoji and an interview with their creator, Shigetaka Kurita, the book includes an exploration of non-text typefaces, from the decorative fleurons of the early days of the printing press to the innumerable digital typefaces available today, to the use of emoticons, ASCII art, and kaomoji in typed messages. It also looks at an array of artworks, fashion lines, special character sets, advertisements, and projects that convey emoji's widespread impact on contemporary culture. Finally, the book concludes with a section for which a group of illustrators, artists, and graphic designers have created original emoji characters they wish existed, including bacon, a vinyl record, and even a "stabbed-in-the-back" emoji.
