I love legos! I still have my functioning train set from when I was 10 years old that we pull out at Christmas. I have the 1st edition lego death star that took a week to put together, and a handful of other items around. My girls are getting into legos now too, which adds to the fun. We spend hours putting together the designs on the pages, or making our own, like a fire station, movie theatre, or even “Captain Frank’s Emporium”. So when I stumbled upon The Unofficial LEGO Builder’s Guide by Allan Bedford, I had to look to see what new inspirations I could find with them. Full Review  >

This wonderful book combines a theory of Lego building that is presented in satisfying detail and that I had never imagined, with well constructed and instructed hands-on exercises that will spark, re-ingnite and inspire a love for Lego. Bedford's narrative speaks to his own love for his subject and creates an engaging and inspiring work. All in all a dangerous, dangerous book - one that will have you off adding to your Lego collection and spending an increasing amount of time in the virtual workshop, playing, tinkering, imaging, and building.
