Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana Deluxe Edition by Luigi Serafini

Original Title: Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana Deluxe Edition

From the intriguing mind behind Codex Seraphinianus comes this beautifully illustrated tribute to the famed Neapolitan character Pulcinella (or "Punch" as he is referred to in English). Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana contains over one hundred extraordinary graphite illustrations with scarlet accents, some of which are depicted in comic-strip style. Conceived as a musical Suite, it is divided into nine scenes with an intermission. It features the oddly surreal and globally recognized character, whose origins have been lost in the mists of the time. An ancestor of Pulcinella was certainly Maccus, the protagonist of the Atellanae Fabulae, very popular farces in ancient Rome, but it was in the early seventeenth-century that the character assumed the name and costume that we all know. Distinguished by a long nose and typically dressed in white with a black mask, Pulcinella is often depicted in various kinds of misadventures and singing about love, hunger, and money. As he famously did in the Codex, Luigi Serafini, has created Pulcinellopaedia Seraphiniana in a unique language all its own, and has filled it with fascinating and mysterious illustrations that will no doubt prompt devotees to obsessively try to decipher the artist's intention. Written by Serafini's imaginative coauthor and alter ego "P. Cetrulo," who represents Pulcinella himself, the book artfully presents the struggles of a rebellious antihero who must come to grips with the challenges of everyday life. Originally, a book about Pulcinella and his world appeared in 1984, after Serafini's involvement with the 1982 Carnival of Venice, the first revival of the famous festivity after two centuries of silence. Now more than three decades later, this new edition has been extensively revised and includes a new afterword by the author. Like its predecessor, the original edition became immensely sought after and highly valuable, fetching more than one thousand dollars if book collectors were lucky enough to get their hands on a copy. All fans of Serafini's work will treasure this volume. Rizzoli will also publish a deluxe limited edition with a signed and numbered print.

Quantum Continuous Variables by Alessio Serafini

Original Title: Quantum Continuous Variables

Quantum Continuous Variables introduces the theory of continuous variable quantum systems, from its foundations based on the framework of Gaussian states to modern developments, including its applications to quantum information and forthcoming quantum technologies. This new book addresses the theory of Gaussian states, operations, and dynamics in great depth and breadth, through a novel approach that embraces both the Hilbert space and phase descriptions. The volume includes coverage of entanglement theory and quantum information protocols, and their connection with relevant experimental set-ups. General techniques for non-Gaussian manipulations also emerge as the treatment unfolds, and are demonstrated with specific case studies. This book will be of interest to graduate students looking to familiarise themselves with the field, in addition to experienced researchers eager to enhance their understanding of its theoretical methods. It will also appeal to experimentalists searching for a rigorous but accessible treatment of the theory in the area.

Remixing Multiliteracies by Frank Serafini

Original Title: Remixing Multiliteracies

Bringing together renowned scholars in literacy education, this volume offers the first comprehensive account of the evolution and future of multiliteracies pedagogy. This groundbreaking collection examines the rich contributions of the New London Group (NLG)—an international gathering of noted scholars who met in 1996 and influenced the direction of literacy scholarship for decades to come. With a focus on design and multimodality as key concerns in literacy pedagogy, these ideas have become even more salient as literacy has become intertwined with digital technologies. The essays in this book not only provide an overview of the fundamental ideas of NLG and their importance across literacy, communications, and media studies, but also explore how these concepts have been adapted by today’s educators to better prepare students for a rapidly changing, globalized world. Contributors include Bill Cope, James Paul Gee, Carey Jewitt, Mary Kalantzis, Gunther Kress, Mary B. McVee, Sarah Michaels, Rebecca Rogers, Jennifer Rowsell, and Karen E. Wohlwend. “I’ve read a lot about the importance of new literacies, digital literacies, and multi-literacies—and now there is finally a book that moves this whole cluster into the world of curriculum and pedagogy! Bravo!” —P. David Pearson, University of California, Berkeley “This book warrants deep engagement by teachers, teacher educators, researchers, and all who are concerned with schooling and social justice in the ever-changing world of the 21st century.” —Len Unsworth, Learning Sciences Institute Australia “This collection showcases authors at the leading edge of multiliteracies research and scholarship. It provides a fascinating and accessible state-of-the art assessment of a major approach to understanding literacy practices in the digital era.” —Michele Knobel, Montclair State University
