Summary

UMBERTO ECO INÉDITO Y VISIONARIO

Un canto de amor a los libros y a su acumulación obsesiva, por «el escritor que cambió la cultura» (Corriere della Sera)

«Umberto Eco cambió nuestra mirada sobre los libros: imprescindibles, pequeños, frágiles, a veces criminales, casi siempre salvadores. Un maestro que nos enseñó a entrelazar la sabiduría y el juego con su estilo sagaz y lúdico, con su asombrosa inventiva y certera lucidez.» -Irene Vallejo

El libro es un seguro de vida, una pequeña anticipación de la inmortalidad.

El cerebro humano cuenta, desde el principio de los tiempos, con una memoria orgánica y otra mineral, grabada en piedras y tabletas de arcilla. Junto a ellas, de forma paralela, se ha desarrollado otra más profunda, silenciosa y revolucionaria: la memoria vegetal, impresa en papiros y en trapos hasta llegar al papel procedente del árbol que conocemos hoy. Su instrumento de supervivencia es el libro, objeto de amor y devoción durante siglos.

Umberto Eco, el «humanista integral», según Fernando Savater, dedica estos textos inéditos e iluminadores a los bibliófilos como él, a los futuros bibliófilos y a los que todavía no saben que lo son. Un libro para aprender, deslumbrarse, emocionarse y seguir leyendo siempre.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

UMBERTO ECO UNEDITED AND VISIONARY
 
A song of love for books and their obsessive accumulation, by "the writer who changed culture" (Corriere della Sera)
 
‘Umberto Eco changed our view of books: essential, small, fragile, sometimes criminal, almost always saviors. A teacher who taught us to intertwine wisdom and play with his shrewd and playful style, with his amazing inventiveness and accurate lucidity.’ - Irene Vallejo
 
The book is life insurance, a little anticipation of immortality.
 
The human brain has, since the beginning of time, an organic and a mineral memory, engraved on stones and clay tablets. Along with them, in a parallel way, a more profound, silent and revolutionary one has developed: plant memory, printed on papyri and rags until it reaches the paper from the tree that we know today. His instrument of survival is the book, an object of love and devotion for centuries.
 
Umberto Eco, the ‘integral humanist,’ according to Fernando Savater, dedicates these unedited and illuminating texts to bibliophiles like him, to future bibliophiles and to those who still don’t know they are. A book to learn from, be dazzled by, get excited about and to always keep reading.
