Hi James,

A snub cube is the name for one of the 13 Archimedean solids. This
particular one happens to have 38 faces, 24 vertices, and 60 edges.
You can find a picture of it at Ha Le's site:

Follow the link to the Archimedean solids, where you'll find a picture
of a snub cube along with the other 12 solids:

The site also explains what it means for a solid to be an Archimedean
solid and gives constructions for the simpler ones. Unfortunately, the
snub cube is not one of the simpler ones, but it does give a reference
for where you can look if you want to make one for yourself.

Thanks for writing.
