'The Ultimate Lego Book' contains everything that Lego fans have ever wanted to know about the Lego Group and the Lego System of toys. The book begins with a detailed visual timeline that tells the remarkable story of the company that grew from a village carpenter's workshop into one of the world's best-known family brands. The Lego Masterbuilders section reveals how professional Lego model makers work, and mow several incredible Lego models are made. the book then explores the Legoland theme parks and reveals the secret of many of their most exciting attractions. The final section examines the unlimited possibilities of the Lego brick, and how this apparently simple toy has inspired numerous architects, designers, and artists. Not content with raiding Lego photo archives from London to California, DK sent editors, designers, and photographers to Lego HQ in Billund, Denmark, and to the Lego model-making centers at Billund and Windsor, England, to make this book the complete guide to the Lego universe.
