They also vary in scale.
While most of the chapters are in standard minifigure scale, others are "miniland" scale -- the scale of the buildings you see at LEGOLAND, where the characters are approximately six inches tall, There are even a few pages of nearly human-sized food -- a sushi platter, hamburger and fries, etc. My favorite chapters were on Dordrecht and one called "Trouble in Eden. Dordrecht is built by Patrick Bosman. We also get the addresses of their Flickr accounts if they have them, so we can see what else they've done.
There are hundreds of high quality photographs showing the worlds these builders have created, but also specific instructions for building specific models. In Dordrecht, Megs and Patrick show us how to build a beautiful 17th Century Dutch House, with brickwork, arches, Dutch spires and a detailed interior.
These instructions are laid out more quickly than they would be in a standard LEGO instruction booklet. If you've got a lot of LEGOing under your belt, they're challenging to follow; if you're a kid attempting the same thing, I can see getting frustrated quickly. Her project is an eco-friendly house pictured on the cover of the book. The house itself is an interesting modern build, but what I liked best are the small add-ons that are easy to build and add to any LEGO neighborhood.
This includes rooftop solar panels, windmill, and water heaters, compost bin and chicken coop, a beehive and a lot of foliage.

Nov 03, Bill Ward rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a very easy book to read I finished it in well under an hour. It's mostly pictures, with comic-book style speech bubbles, so there's not a lot to read, but I really enjoyed it.
The basic idea is that the author, represented by a LEGO minifig, first builds her "Idea Lab," complete with a robotic assistant Brickbot and a levitating platform called the "Transport-o-lux" and then Brickbot sends her traveling through time and space to visit various builders and see what they've built. Each This was a very easy book to read The book shows a whimsical and light style which is entertaining throughout. I really enjoyed the variety of models chosen, and the excellent photography showing the construction techniques used.
In many cases however, there isn't quite the level of detail you'd expect in a LEGO set, and it might be frustrating to try to build I also really like that it is written by and starring a woman, and although all but one of the builders visited are men, the models featured throughout the book include many things that should be of interest to both boys and girls.
I think this book is absolutely perfect for what it is trying to be, a source of ideas and inspiration for creative younger LEGO builders. I was sent a free copy of this book to review.

I've always wished I could look at a pile of LEGOs and see all of the creative opportunities, but honestly I need some guideposts. This book is a colorful, imaginative introduction to some very buildable, very creative projects. Each is approachable, not overly complicated-- but they're still projects I wouldn't have dreamed up by myself.
A great place to start. I recommend this I recently had an opportunity to delve into some incredibly fun Lego guidebooks-- and this one is easily my favorite.
I recommend this for LEGO fans of any age, especially those like me who love the sets, but need a little more hand-holding when it comes to free builds. Great for kids, but fun for adults like me! Jun 22, Jacob rated it really liked it.
Public library copy. The pictures are perfect and I really liked the panel to panel, step-by-step break down on how to assemble these inventive, custom creations.
Unfortunately, when one downloads a Lego set the consumer only gets enough pieces to make the particular Lego set and if a customer downloads a bucket there aren't ever enough piec Public library copy.

Jan 28, Seth rated it really liked it Shelves: I liked it, but on a few parts it got a little slow. Sep 23, Ietrio rated it did not like it Shelves: Imagination, creativity, play, this is everything but.
This is a formulaic book to get constant results which are not even yours.
Oh, the fun Chaplin's character had in Modern Times! May 19, Judah rated it really liked it. Mar 21, Joel Neff rated it it was amazing. Frankly, I bought the bundle because I was interested in the programming and manga books. The LEGO books included stirred my interest only a little, and that more from nostalgia than any burning desire to break out the old bricks. However, this book, and several others included in the bundle, are inspiring, both creatively and financially, in their clear instructions, detailed lists of parts, and excellent photography and artwork.
Since then, I've seen the kits in the toy stores and online, but I haven't been particularly inspired to download anything branded by Marvel or Star Wars or, well, anything else. Even though I fully understand why LEGO, as a company would partner with these other brands and companies, it just wasn't for me.
I put the book down at several points to go online and look for kits or bricks or designs. In the end, I even ordered a couple of kits for the first time in years. I have an idea. I have a plan. I have something to build. And it is thanks to this book. Rothrock, No Starch Press, and this book. Feb 09, Christian Petrie rated it it was amazing Shelves: When I was a child, one of my favorite toys was Lego. Back then Ideal Books came out which showed how to build some different things you could build with the current sites, and give you ideas on others.
I enjoyed the book so much, they would start to fall apart. Jump ahead to now, and my kids are into Lego as well.
