Description

Let your creativity soar with 15 projects using interlocking bricks and to make birds from around the world.

Interlocking bricks, such as LEGO(R), have fueled the imaginations of aspiring designers and builders for generations. In Birds from Bricks, horticulturist and LEGO enthusiast Thomas Poulsom guides you through re-creating nature's feathered-friends in stunning detail. Assemble your very own cardinal, macaw, penguin, and more!

With detailed step-by-step instructions and full color photos of completed models, Birds from Bricks will let your creativity soar. Learn how to build 15 projects, featuring birds from around the world: North and South America, the Mid-Atlantic, Eurasia, Africa, the North Pacific, and Australia/New Zealand.

Each set of instructions includes entertaining and educational information about the bird's characteristics and habitat. Poulsom's creative and charming designs surprise and delight lovers of birds, nature, and--of course--LEGO.

The author

A gardener and tree surgeon by profession and a passionate nature and bird lover, Thomas Poulsom rediscovered his love of building with Lego as an adult. He was inspired to create his first realistic Lego bird sculpture, a robin, when a real robin perched nearby while he worked in his garden. Poulsom has since expanded the scope of his Lego project to more than 30 birds from every continent; three--his robin, hummingbird, and bluejay--were recently accepted by Lego for production as a set. Poulsom's Lego bird designs have been featured in many online venues for Lego, design, gardening, nature, and birding enthusiasts. In 2013 he was a speaker at the PINC (People Ideas Nature Creativity) Conference in Zeist, Holland.
