Models of the regular and semi-regular polyhedral solids have fascinated people for centuries. The Greeks knew the simplest of them. Since then the range of figures has grown; 75 are known today and are called, more generally, 'uniform' polyhedra. The author describes simply and carefully how to make models of all the known uniform polyhedra and some of the stellated forms. Fully illustrated with drawings and photographs, this is the first practical guide to making these intricate and beautiful solids.
