There are several typos, small errors, and inaccuracies in first edition of The Functional Art. I will list them here as soon as I find them. Please send me an e-mail if you spot one: firstname.lastname@example.org
• Page 2: The Malofiej organization has updated their website. It's www.malofiej21.com now (it used to be www.malofiej20 when The Functional Art was published.)
• Page 15: It's "Eric", not "Erich."
• Page 27: Figure 2.1. The graphic headline is missing. It should be "Defense in South America."
• Page 29: Each silhouette in the graph is equivalent to 10,000 soldiers (numbers are still in thousands.)
• Page 33: Lamarck lived between the "eighteenth and nineteenth" centuries, not between the "nineteenth and the twentieth". This is such a stupid one that I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote it, or how I missed it later. It's like saying that Lamarck lived after the guy who corrected him (Charles Darwin). As much as love Science Fiction, not even H.G. Wells would have passed that.
• Page 62: Nigel Holmes was the graphics director at Time magazine, not the art director.
• Page 71: Niels Bohr, not Niels "Böhr".
• Page 109: Figure 5.1. Caption. It should read "savanna", not "savannah", obviously (I love Georgia too much!). Also, it should be "feel", and not "fe;t".
• Page 111: At the end of the quote it should read "Chris Frith", not "Christ Firth".
• Page 113: Just to clarify: Both maps on Figure 6.3 use pictograms. The difference is that on the second one we help readers identify the two different kinds of phenomena by using color, and not just the shape of the pictograms.
• Page 132: Footnote 5, "Fron" should be "From."
• Page 212: www.malofiej20.com seems to have been hacked, or the domain expired and the SND-E folks forgot to renovate it. In any case, you can still visit http://snd-e.com/ to get information about Malofiej.
• Page 306: In the intro to the interview with Hans Rosling, "because" should be "became".
• Page 336: Figure 10.67. Caption. It should be "ratio", and not "ration."
• Page 341: "Blatantly" instead of "blantly."
