The Unofficial LEGO Builder's Guide - Paperback Book
Starting with the basic structure, anatomy and flexibility of the LEGO® system, readers are taught different building techniques to add stability and ideas to their creations. Much of the book is devoted to the kinds of scale used in the LEGO world and provides mathematical explanations for one's work. Chapters on sculpting and mosaic-making are in-depth and give readers tips that LEGO Master Builders use.
A great feature of the guide is the "Brickopedia," which categorizes more than 275 basic LEGO pieces, providing specifications and notes on each one; though not all-inclusive, it does contain the most common items found in most individuals' collections. Templates and Web links for blank design grids include detailed instructions on how to properly use them when making one's own projects. The graphics are of the highest quality and accurately capture what the author is trying to convey without interrupting the flow of text. The writing style is engaging while taking some complicated topics and explaining them in clear, relatable language.
Like a good LEGO project, each chapter expands layer by layer on the one before, resulting in a thorough, well-rounded and indispensable source of guidance and creativity.
