The Shape of Space

Just came across this book: The Shape of Space (Chapman & Hall/CRC Pure and Applied Mathematics). It is a very unique book, in the sense that it is aimed at high school students, but even a undergraduate or graduate student can benefit from it. It has a lot of diagrams, that are missing in most textbooks, presumably because it takes a lot of effort to draw a mathematical (3D) diagram.

It will be useful to students who want to learn more about topology. This book can be read casually, it is not like a textbook, yet it has substantial mathematical content.

Example of an illustration in the book:
