**Description**:

The German mathematician Felix Klein discovered in 1879 that the surface that we now call the Klein quartic has many remarkable properties, including an incredible 336-fold symmetry, the maximum possible degree of symmetry for any surface of its type. This volume explores the rich tangle of properties and theories surrounding this multiform object.
