An easy-to-use manual for grown-ups and kids that explains how to make wonderful creations out of LEGO, with basic information, plenty of useful tips, and lots of ideas on how to customise and enhance the models using one's imagination. A detailed historical introduction on the origin and development of the famous "bricks", is followed by chapters devoted to specific topics -- from cars to ships, from airplanes to cities, even to "writing" with LEGO -- that describe different construction techniques and reveal all the tricks for creating original models. A practical "dictionary" analyses the most common types of bricks and explains which ones are which, what they are called, how to recognise them, and how to find individual pieces. The volume also explains essential technical jargon to beginners, who, by consulting the various sections, will learn how to devise new models in order to test their skills as master builders.
