In thirty-three "concept blocks," Megan Werner explores a wide range of possible types including laser-scored acrylic models, basswood topography models, acid etched metal blocks, peeled paper blocks, D-print models, cement pour blocks, and many more. Model Making includes handy appendices on materials, tools, and tips and techniques, as well as a glossary of design concepts."
