Brickset exclusive: The LEGO Adventure book
Megan has sent me exclusive information and pictures to share with you:
When you take a legendary former LEGO Designer, talented AFOLs from around the world and a thirty year-long desire for a sequel to the classic LEGO Idea Book what do you get?
The LEGO Adventure Book: Cars, Castles, Dinosaurs and more!
Megan Rothrock (megs/megzter) has gathered some of the top LEGO builders from around the globe for the unofficial sequel to the classic 6000: LEGO Idea Book, she has even tracked down one of the former LEGO Designers of the original book and the new book features MOCs he has built since retiring!
Former LEGO Designer Megan says “Ever since the LEGO Fan Community started to find each other online many of us have hoped and dreamed for a sequel to the LEGO Idea Book from 1979. For many that little book kicked us into a LEGO building overdrive! Each page inspired and showed so much potential for what could be built at the time with LEGO bricks. My aim with The LEGO Adventure Book is to do the same for this generation, as well as shake up the AFOL builders a little with quite a few challenging builds for them too.”
What is The LEGO Adventure Book about?
Follow mini-figure Megs as she journeys into different worlds, meets awesome AFOLs and explores their LEGO building techniques! Learn some of their closely guarded secrets, read Building Journal entries to gain a deeper insight into how each of them approaches LEGO model design and there's at least one complete model breakdown (photographic instructions might describe this better) from each builder too. There's everything from small brick by brick builds to more complex model breakdowns of hard to build AFOL masterpieces. Whether you are a seasoned AFOL builder or just getting into LEGO, there is something in The LEGO Adventure Book for everyone.
What will the book be like?
This is a 200 page hard cover book chock-full of vibrant illustrations, building guides and featuring well over 200 inspirational models! It is full colour throughout and is printed on high quality glossy paper. It contains NEVER before seen LEGO models from retired LEGO Designer Daniel August Krentz, one of the Designers who worked on the classic LEGO Idea book and features many other chapters from both LEGO professionals and AFOLs!
Where can I get The LEGO Adventure Book?
The book is released in early November and can be pre-ordered from Amazon:
It looks and sounds great, doesn't it -- I can't wait for it to be published!
