  • Editorial Reviews

    ".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."
