This Old Pond comic is inspired by a SHARP 2017 talk by Lisa Gitelman, New York University: “Emoji Dick, Prequels and Sequels”.

Did you know Amazon produced a translation of Moby Dick using emoji? The book is called Emoji Dick. It could have been a fun project. Unfortunately the book is gibberish, as most translations were produced randomly. Here are some pictures:
