Coming soon: The LEGO Adventure Book
Posted 24 September 2012 - 06:11 PM
The LEGO® Adventure Book: Cars, Castles, Dinosaurs, and More is a new 200 page hard cover ‘unofficial’ LEGO book by former LEGO Designer and AFOL Megan Rothrock (megs on brickshelf and megzter1 on Flickr) and published by No Starch Press (who brought us The Cult of LEGO). Megan has gathered some of the top LEGO builders from around the globe to be featured in what she hopes is 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.
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.

Hi Brett - I asked Megan - the author - she tells me the publisher told her there are only hardcovers at this point, so you should be fine!
