    Author Allan Bedford starts readers from knowing little more than that there are Legos up to the principles of building high-level concepts of all types (his examples include everything from tiny cottages to the Space Shuttle). He talks about everything from how to arrange and overlap blocks to maintain structural stability, how to plan size ratios of your sculptures, how to handle mosaics, and how to create larger projects. It’s fascinating to look through. If you’re a would-be serious Lego designer, this book is absolutely essential to your library. Oh, included in the book is a “Brickopedia” which lists every Lego brick made, and all the specifics.
