From the Publisher
Brick City is a model builder''s festival in book form. What lends special distinction to the models is the way they''re constructed. Each is made entirely of LEGO bricks! Known for decades as a favorite children''s toy, LEGO bricks have entered the adult model builder''s repertoire in recent years. Author and model maker Warren Elsmore presents instructions for neophyte LEGO modelers plus plans for constructing specific buildings and landmarks, along with vivid photos of completed LEGO models. The models represent landmarks from all over the world, and include-- St. Basil''s Cathedral New York''s New World Trade Center The Arc de Triomphe Rome''s Colosseum A London taxicab Hong Kong ferries Buckingham Palace. . . and many others
Featuring amazing photos of LEGO models, and scale drawings of structural details to guide model builders, Brick City presents a modeler''s panorama of contemporary urban landscapes. More than 400 illustrations in color and black and white.
BONUS POSTERS: Enclosed with the book are two dramatic posters featuring LEGO® model photos of architectural world landmarks. The posters, which are suitable for framing, unfold to 17 1/2" x 24 3/4"
".This book is 250+ pages with brilliant colors and beautiful pictures. The photography is really excellent and the layout, cover and binding are all very nice. The book would be suitable for an older child, or teen, who is interested in travel and architecture as well as building with LEGO, and of course adult LEGO builders."
