    The story of a square's life in the land of two dimensions, which is quite ordinary until one day a strange being takes him on a journey to the third dimension. This is a book that will turn your brain on its end and change the way you view society, theology, and all of reality. Recommended for high-level readers.

    For the real illustrations, download directly from Project Guttenberg. These are ASCII approximations. Yuck.
