San Francisco, CA, August 5, 2014The LEGO® Neighborhood Book (No Starch Press, September 2014, 204 pp., 4C, $19.95, ISBN 9781593275716) is an inspiring full-color guide to creating intricate, realistic LEGO buildings and towns. At last, here's a book for LEGO fans young and old who don't always know how to turn those little bricks into the town of their dreams. After all, why just build a boring old house when you can create a whole community?

The LEGO Neighborhood Book shows readers how to create buildings with real-world details like cornices, facades, and columns. Readers give interior design a try by filling their buildings with furniture and light fixtures, and then add finishing touches—plants, traffic lights, scaffolding, park benches—to the streets of their neighborhoods.

The heavily illustrated The LEGO Neighborhood Book includes:

  • Complete, step-by-step instructions for four multistory buildings
  • Mini builds for a recliner, old-time lamp post, traffic light, and more
  • A gallery of the authors' designs
  • A discussion of the design process, including tips for getting started

The LEGO Neighborhood Book will be available in bookstores everywhere in September.
