Product Description

Review

'If you are one of the many who think modern Lego is too easy, with its specially designed pieces, this will renew your faith in the magic Danish brick. And for everyone, this is an opportunity to boggle at the obsessive ingenuity of what are known as AFOLs (adult fans of Lego).' -- Rowan Moore, The Telegraph

'AFOL (adult fans of LEGO) are on the rise and we reckon there will be a few more after people see Warren Elsmore's new book Brick City: LEGO for Grown Ups where he painstakingly creates international landmarks and shows you step by step guides of how to do the same.' -- Time Out

'Comprising amazing artwork, exploratory photographs and detailed breakdowns, Brick City looks at the essence of what makes an urban landscape recognizable.' --Gizmodo.com

Book Description

Brick City is a celebration of the world's favourite buildings and urban icons, recreated solely using LEGO bricks.

Format: Flexibound
This small Lego book punches above it's weight (and size). It is choc-full of amazing models at all scales, from the gargantuan to the tinìest micro-scale works. Photography and printing is of a high quality throughout. The text is well written and informative. I like the way how acknowledgement is given to both the architect of the real world building, as well as the designer of the Lego version.

Although the page size is small, there's two massive fold out posters included on the inside and outside flaps.
Instructions are given to help you recreate the smaller models. It really is hard to see how the publishers could have packed any more in for the price.

Absolutely terrific.

Brilliant! Anything that gets them off the PS3 for this long has got to be recommended. Think I've got a couple of budding architects....

Fascinating, it is amazing what can be built with Lego bricks! It has also been an inspiration for my grandsons (10 yrs and 8 yrs old ) when they visit me.

Warren Elsmore has achieved a wonderful feat with this book. It's beautifully put together with high quality colour throughout. From the introductory explanations through to the many step by step guides to creating the smaller creations (the Collosseum is the largest!) and then on, with pictures of the authors larger, more commercial builds it is informative , inspiring and a joy to read. If you love lego and have a ton of bricks lying around get this book. If you just love lego, buy it anyway, you'll soon be itching to go out and buy some bricks as well.
