MAKE: AMENDS Errata for This Article


Correction for page 157
In Volume 30’s “Howtoons” project [page 156, “The Measure of Man”] the 7" measurement is incorrect. It should be measured from the left outside edge to the right edge of the smallest rectangle. Thanks to reader Thomas Zink of Springfield, Ohio, for spotting the error.
