Possible Wenninger Erratum

Post by TomF » Fri Jan 14, 2022 9:27 pm

I just completed a model of the great icosahedron using the directions in Polyhedron Models. There appears to be a mistake in line (2) of the color table. It reads
OY BO GB RB YR
when it should read
OY BO GB RG YR.
The only copy of the book that I have is a first paperback edition, so I don't know if this error was corrected in later editions. Can someone tell me if it has been corrected. I've found some errata in the books online, but not this one.

I don't know about that one, but I know the book is known to have several errors, including in some of the nets.

I have a reprint from 1987. There it is written in the same way: RB in row (2). I never realized that this is an error.
