Polyhedron models by Magnus J Wenninger( Book )

52 editions published between 1970 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Spherical models by Magnus J Wenninger( Book )

19 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Well-illustrated, practical approach to creating star-faced spherical forms that can serve as basic structures for geodesic domes. Complete instructions for making models from circular bands of paper with just a ruler and compass. Discusses tessellation, or tiling, and the relationship of polyhedra to geodesic domes and directions for building models of domes
Polyhedron models for the classroom by Magnus J Wenninger( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 1986 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet explains the historical background and construction techniques for various sets of uniform polyhedra. The author indicates that the practical significance of the constructions arises in illustrations for the ideas of symmetry, reflection, rotation, translation, group theory and topology. Details for constructing hollow paper models are provided for the five Platonic solids, miscellaneous irregular polyhedra and some compounds arising from the stellation process. (Rs)
