Good expositions on quasiconformal mappings and Teichmuller spaces?

    Any references would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I can't even remember where I saw the name Teichmuller before, but it's some pretty specialized stuff in topology isn't it? Have you asked someone at your local university?

    Well, from what I've encountered, it's concerned with Riemann surfaces and conformal mappings between Riemann surfaces. It seems to draw together a lot of areas of mathematics: classical complex analysis, Banach manifolds, discrete geometry, algebraic topology.

    No one at the university I'm attending is doing research in this area. I know of a few books (Ahlfors' lectures on quasiconformal mappings; Gardiner's two books), I'm just wondering if there are any others.
