The neighbor girl brought over her birthday present to show me today. It was the new LEGO Ideas Book. As I started looking at it, I was surprised to see that I "knew" (in the vague internet sense) 4 of the contributing fans. Two of them that I know come around Classic-Castle are AlienCat and SlyOwl. They all had 4-page spreads with pictures of their MOCs and brief interview questions. (I noticed that SlyOwl's Fairytale submission from last year's CCC was there.) I didn't have a chance to read it all, but it looked interesting, and I'll have to pester Haley to let me borrow her book again. Besides the pages about different fans, there were lots of pages about various techniques for building in the castle theme (and the other themes too, of course). Anyway, I found it a pleasant surprise and hope to look at it more thoroughly in the future.
Haley said she got it cheaper than the listed price at Barnes and Nobles website. That led me to look there, and I found this link to the product: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/lego-id ... eas%2bbook
There are a few sample pictures, though not much from the castle section.
I was interested, so I thought I'd share.
