Guy Himber ~ California

 
   

V&A Steamworks (Nom De Plume of Guy Himber when building LEGO creations): "The books are the world's only fully functional books constructed completely out of LEGO.

"They have fully realized covers, spine, and pages that open flat and maintain the curvature of a real book. Each one is created out of 200+ LEGO parts. Each edition will use over 20,000 individual pieces. The dimensions of the books are approximately 3 1/4" wide x 3 3/4" tall x 2" thick. Only 4 points on the book are cemented ( for permanence ) but being LEGO, the balance of the book is held together via the power of the bricks.

"The content of the book is printed on vinyl pages. The permanent process is both waterproof and sunproof. Each book features 8 pages."

V & A Steamworks
By Guy Himber
Tarzana, California: Guy Himber, 2009. Edition of 100.

3.25 x 3.75 x 2.75"; 8 pages. Materials: LEGO parts; vinyl.

Guy Himber: "Built from LEGO, this is a completely functional book. It's pages are filled with pictures of the author's original Steampunk themed LEGO Creations.

"Steampunk is a formal term that refers to a subgenre of speculative science fiction set in an anachronistic 19th century society. In other words, it is
a fun, fantasy style that is full of lots of whimsy and interesting hand-craftiness in brass and wood. It is my main muse when I design and build."
