Le Topologicon

Le Topologicon is a great comic book about topology. The author is Jean-Pierre Petit who discovered the first parameterization of the boy surface in 1981. He is also the co-founder of the non-profit organization Savoir-sans-frontiers. The book deals with moebius strips, klein bottles, boy surfaces, magnetic fields, surface stiching and a lot more interesting topics. In my opinion, the Topologicon is a must-read for everyone dealing with surface modelling, mesh modelling, subdivision surfaces, surface tesselation, vector fields, deformations, or topological space. Some example pages:
