Amazon.com is now taking pre-orders for the forthcoming book by author and LEGO enthusiast Thomas Poulsom. Entitled Birds from Bricks Poulsom guides the reader through how to go about building 15 projects including birds from around the world. Smartly, the book is “Flexi-bound” which should make it easier to keep open for reference as you build.
Poulsom is the right guy to author this book. His LEGO Ideas project Birds was a hugely popular one that almost literally flew (pun intended) off the shelves of LEGO stores and his Flickr account contains lots of other examples of birds and other animals that he has built.
The following text is from Amazon.com.

About 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.
