    From The Theatre of Operations:

    Edwin Abbott’s Flatland is a classic. But in 2012 the last french edition of this text was no longer available. Zones Sensibles decided to republish the best translation (released in 1996) and I decided to pay tribute to this fantastic tale. As I live in Spaceland, I have imagined a three-dimensional cover (the reader can pick up the black-varnished letters of the title and some forms). The inner layout is made of different formats (squares, circles, triangles) and one folder is printed in color before color had to be banned from Flatland. This book is a real object dedicated to the deep issues of science.
