A LaTeX version of Edwin Abbott's famous essay Flatland
Latest commit ff009d3 @Ivesvdf Fix typo "that most and" => "that most rare and"
With thanks to spiralofhope



Although Edwin A. Abbott's essay "Flatland" is readily available on the internet, I failed to find a nicely typeset version. At this time, the rendering quality of internet browsers doesn't come anywhere near the quality of a nice book.

For these reasons, as well as a healthy portion of boredom, I made the version of "Flatland" you are currently reading, in LaTeX. The LaTeX source can be found on (feel free to make issues or send me pull requests when you find bugs or have improvements). It should also be fairly easy --- a matter of minutes --- to produce a book-sized version, ready to send to a printer.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
