:) + :( | sewn signatures, hardcover bound with exposed spines

The reduction of emotions to punctuation almost seems silly, but then again I seem too make smiley faces out of a colon and a parenthesis all the time when chatting online without a second thought. In this digital age, human contact and emotions are reduced to emails and emoticons. With :) + :(, I chose to create compositions throughout the spreads by using emoticons and punctuation. Each book also contains the emotions contained within the emoticons spelled out in single words on blank pages.
