FOUND: Expressions of Flatland

The following is a list of links to some of the remediations of Flatland that I encountered during my research on Flatland: A Romance of many Dimensions. Throughout the project I have been drawn to how this 1884 text has been transformed by readers and artists. It is interesting to see the different interpretations of a singular text.
