About the Book
Barron's best-selling Brick City was a study of the world's most famous buildings in LEGO form. Now, master modeler, and LEGO aficionado, Warren Elsmore, takes the humble LEGO brick on another global tour, this time to recreate the stunning wonders of the ancient, natural, and modern world. Inside Brick Wonders, Elsmore presents helpful tips for neophyte LEGO modelers (such as where to buy the most useful bricks and how to build to scale) along with plans for constructing specific models. Vivid photos of completed LEGO models are stunning to view and include:
- The Great Pyramid of Giza
- The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
- The International Space Station
- The Panama Canal
- The Grand Canyon
- The Great Barrier Reef
Featuring helpful drawings of structural details to guide model builders, Brick Wonders presents a modeler's panorama of the world's most breathtaking wonders. More than 400 full-color instructional and inspirational images throughout. BONUS POSTERS: Enclosed with the book are two dramatic posters featuring LEGO model photos of the Wonders of the World. The posters, which are suitable for framing, unfold to 17 1/2" x 24 3/4".
My Take on the Book
I had no clue that the original Lego concept began in 1916 and then evolved to the present Lego we know today. It is an interesting history and evolution.
The book contains not only the history, but building tips, instructions to construction of different models and projects. It includes storage tips, online resources, and specific examples of projects from fairly simple to very complex. The examples show the model and then include all the materials needed and the step by step instructions.
If you enjoy working with Legos,l believe this book will be a valuable resource for you.
