A week or so ago, I was lucky enough to receive in the mail two copies of a new LEGO book, called Just Brick It. One copy is to review, with the other copy to be given away! It’s a little bit exciting for me, as this is the first giveaway I’ve been able to run!
Just Brick It is written by David Scarfe and published by Hardie Grant, based in Melbourne. While the book is an unofficial LEGO book, it still has some great ideas for using LEGO around the house and office. It’s focus is the AFOL, and contains around 20 projects ranging from great looking floppy disk coasters, to artistic wall hangings that would also work in an art gallery. There is a bit of everything in there, from toast racks, to Christmas ornaments, to placemats and more. The book will tell you what you require (standard bricks is all), and a step by step guide for building. It’s all nicely laid out with helpful images and beautifully clean photography.
The book itself feels really nice. It’s a nice hardcover, and feels solid – it is a good quality book, and the content inside is very well laid out. The projects are really clever, and would look great anywhere – many of them aren’t what most people would think to make out of LEGO. They are also suitable for many ages, not just the AFOLs that the book is aimed at.
