One thing an ebook can't do? Look good on your coffee table or add to an impressively stocked bookcase.
I recently received the lush hardcover book,"LEGO Architecture: The Visual Guide" and
this has to be the most striking colleciont of 'Lego' love to date.
I know I'm female and if history serves me correctly,not all females appreciate all things lego.
But having had architects in my life thru family and friends,I was initiated early into this miniature world of awesome. My female friends are now catching on too!
"LEGO Architecture: The Visual Guide" was created in close collaboration with The LEGO Group and Adam Reed Tucker, LEGO® Architecture visionary, LEGO Architecture: The Visual Guide takes a deep look at the artists, builders, and inspiration behind the LEGO Architecture series. Beautifully illustrated and annotated, this visual guide allows you to explore the LEGO team's creative process in building and understand how LEGO artists translated such iconic buildings into these buildable LEGO sets.
Stunning images and in-depth exploration of the real buildings like the Guggenheim™ or the Empire State Building, on which the LEGO Architecture series is based, provide you with a comprehensive look at the creation of these intricate sets. Learn why the LEGO team chose certain pieces and what particular challenges they faced. Read about the inspiration behind the creative processes and what designing and building techniques were used on various sets.
