Description - Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott

Edwin Abbott's beloved mathematical adventure novel "Flatland" (1884) is being introduced to a whole new generation of readers and viewers through "Flatland: The Movie", a dramatic computer-animated adaptation starring Martin Sheen, Kristen Bell, Michael York, Tony Hale, and Joe Estevez. This book is the companion to the movie - and the ultimate edition of the classic book on which it is based. A beautiful, large-format volume, "Flatland: The Movie Edition" includes: the full text of the original novel; the screenplay of the movie; essays on the making of the movie by the writers and filmmakers - producer Seth Caplan, director Jeffrey Travis, and director and animator Dano Johnson; color illustrations; and a new introduction by Thomas Banchoff, a Brown University mathematician and Flatland authority who served as an advisor to the filmmakers.By describing the challenges the filmmakers faced in updating a Victorian mathematical allegory for a new generation and transforming it into a compelling animated story, "Flatland: The Movie Edition" makes watching the movie and reading Abbott's book even more illuminating and enjoyable. You'll never think about the multiple dimensions of space in the same way again.
