So happy to introduce you to this emoticonic artist’s book by John Baldessari! The plot is a non-linear narrative, based on the blown-up emojis from the artist's 2017 series. Playing with the limits of language and imagery, it’s both conceptual art primer and exhibition catalog. Editors Stephanie LaCava and Thea Westreich are planning a series of 7 children’s books by artists whose work expands the possibilities of our present world.
