Translating Moby Dick into Japanese Emoji Icons using Amazon's Mechanical Turk.

Wired UK & Introduction by Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City

Hi everyone,
So Wired UK has short bit about Emoji Dick! My friend Henrik found it today and posted it to Twitter.

See below.

I'm also excited to announce that the book is basically done, with the addition of a great introduction written by arts critic Paddy Johnson of http://www.artfagcity.com & L Magazine.

The bad news is that LuLu moved the goal posts and now I have to fit the book into 740 pages, not 800. This isn't fatal, as I can probably adjust margins and font sizes, but it did set me back a bit in terms of schedule.

I'll have some time this weekend.

As for everyone waiting for their hard copies, I'm going to post the PDF as soon as I get the artist proof right. This will hopefully take only one order from LuLu, but I can't be sure. Once the PDF is sealed, I'll put in the big order for all the books, post the PDF, and then ship you your merchandise (unless you live in NYC and then I'll try and hand deliver), and get the screen prints on their way.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Fred
