You may remember the LEGO Technic and NXT books from Isogawa Yoshihito, here referenced in former posts   at TBs .
Probably the most known of them is the "LEGO Technic Tora no Maki", available online as a PDF document for download.
After being adapted into a series of 3 printed books two years ago (2008), although in a Japanese edition only ("burotsuku de tsukuru kikai no hon" which translates into "How to build machines with bricks"), there will be now also a correspondent English printed version as well.
The English version (The LEGO TECHNIC Idea Book) will be published as a printed books series in October 2010, by "no starch press".
- The LEGO TECHNIC Idea Book: Simple Machines
- The LEGO TECHNIC Idea Book: Wheeled Wonders
- The LEGO TECHNIC Idea Book: Fantastic Contraptions
"Tora no Maki" PDF will however continue to be sold from now on.
