Polyhedra: a visual approach

The orderliness and regularities of polyhedra provoke intuitive feelings that they must be significant; however, systematic studies of these three - dimensional figures have been consigned to mathematical treatise. By contrast, Mr Pugh describes polyhedra in visual terms, as a series of interrelated shapes. He begins with the simple Platonic polyhedra,then evolves descriptions of more complex figures, such as geodesic and irregular polyhedra.
