Publisher Comments:

Building blocks have been a familiar presence in children's toy collections for generations, but in the twentieth century new production techniques allowed the building brick to evolve into a multiplicity ofsystems that could make any child his or her own architect and skilled builder, capable of constructing realistic and sturdy miniature buildings.

Fromthe Trade Paperback edition.
