Bookshelf -- The Hinged Square & Other Puzzles by Ivan Moscovich
I haven't seen the rest of the series but based on this book and Moscovitch's reputation, I'd certainly recommend seeking them out. The puzzles are beautifully illustrated and, in some cases, accompanied by a explanation of the underlying mathematics.
The book also features the extraordinary pencil and paper game racetrack.
