about this item

Brick City is a model builder's festival in book form. It's a pictorial collection of world- famous buildings--and a photo gallery that also includes pictures of each building's miniaturized model. 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 that readers can build represent landmarks from all over the world, and include--

  • The Golden Gate Bridge
  • New York's new World Trade Center
  • The Louvre in Paris
  • Rome's Coliseum
  • A London taxicab
  • Hong Kong ferries
  • The Great Wall of China . . . and many others

    Featuring photos of actual landmarks, amazing artwork, 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"
