Overview

Brick History: A Brick History of the World in LEGO by Warren Elsmore

With video games, theme parks, a hit movie, and more, there's no denying that LEGO® is making history! And no one demonstrates the power and versatility of LEGO better than master modeler Warren Elsmore. Brick History features 50 of the most pivotal historic moments in time…and captures them in a mixture of detailed dioramas and buildable projects. Each chapter includes a number of these buildable projects, complete with easy-to-follow instructions. Readers are in for a treat with four fascinating chapters that include models of:
• Prehistory and the Birth of Civilization—The Big Bang, the foundation stone of the first Egyptian pyramid, the assassination of Julius Caesar, and the Norman conquest of England
• Renaissance and the Age of Empire—the invention of the Gutenberg Printing Press, the consecration of the Sistine Chapel, Christopher Columbus's discovery of America, the defeat of the Spanish Armada, and the Mayflower's journey to America
• 19th Century—the construction of the first cast iron bridge and the onset of the Industrial Revolution, the California Gold Rush, the Confederate defeat and abolition of slavery following the Civil War, and Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone
• 20th Century and Beyond—the Wright Brothers' first flight, the sinking of the Titanic, the D-Day landings and the Allied victory, Discovery of DNA, Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech and the birth of the Civil Rights movement, the Apollo 11 moon landings, President Obama's inauguration, and the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton
Features more than 400 full-color images throughout. Enclosed with the book are two dramatic 17 1/2" x 24" posters featuring stunning models of LEGO® scenes from history. It's the perfect way to create—or change—your own version of history.
