Brick City is a model builder's festival in book form. It's a pictorial collection of world- famous buildings--and a photo gallery that also includes pictures of each building's miniaturized model.

Known for decades as a favorite children's toy, LEGO bricks have entered the adult model builder's repertoire in recent years. Author and model maker Warren Elsmore presents instructions for neophyte LEGO modelers plus plans for constructing specific buildings and landmarks, along with vivid photos of completed LEGO models. The models that readers can build represent landmarks from all over the world, and include--

The Golden Gate Bridge New York's new World Trade Center The Louvre in Paris Rome's Coliseum A London taxicab Hong Kong ferries The Great Wall of China . . . and many others
