Dear Regina Celly,
Do you know Latin? Certainly you must be aware of the meaning of your name--a most unusual
one. The English translation would be "Queen of Heaven"--Regina Caeli, an honorific of the
mother of Christ. She is a powerful protectrix!
I would add one book to your list: it was published after my father's death by the University of
Toronto Press. It is called Laws of Media: The New Science. I believe it is also translated into
Portuguese. This book is a sort of summary of my father's earlier work as well as a departure
into entirely new territory.
Another very important book of his, which he wrote with the painter, Harley Parker, is called
Through the Vanishing Point: Space in Poetry and Painting. If you can get a look at that one, it
would repay your interest.
There was not time to respond to your letter before your presentation, but I hope that these
few notes will be of some interest to you.
With all best wishes,
Você sabe latim? Certamente você deve estar ciente do significado de seu nome -
uma das mais incomuns. A tradução Inglês seria;Rainha do Céu; - Regina Caeli, um
título honorífico da mãe de Cristo. Ela é uma protectora poderosa.
Gostaria de acrescentar um livro à sua lista: ela foi publicada após a morte de meu
pai pela University of Toronto Press. É chamado de Leis de Mídia: A Nova Ciência.
Creio que também é traduzida para o Português. Este livro é uma espécie de síntese
dos trabalhos anteriores do meu pai, assim como uma partida em território
Outro livro muito importante dele, que ele escreveu com o pintor, Harley Parker, é
chamado através do Ponto de Fuga: Espaço na Poesia e Pintura. Se você puder dar
uma olhada no que uma, seria pagar o seu interesse. Não houve tempo para
responder a sua carta antes de sua apresentação, mas espero que estas poucas
notas será de algum interesse para você.
Com todos os melhores desejos,
