Between the Neoclassical period, Postmodernism and the architect’s names you’re familiar with, it can be difficult keeping everything straight when it comes to the buildings around you. LEGO, on the other hand, can be as simple as snapping some bricks together to see if your fingers can realize your vision. Author Tom Alpin has combined the two with The LEGO Architect. Using LEGO as the building blocks (had to), you’ll learn about everything from Art Deco to High-Tech with galleries of famous buildings crafted entirely of LEGO bricks. There are even LEGO style instructions to help you craft modern marvels of your own.

Made of naturally antimicrobial copper allow, The Clean Key works like extra hand or finger to let you open doors, push buttons on ATMs and elevators, and even operate touch screens on registers–without direct contact. It can also be easily cleaned with steel wool or a disinfectant wipe without tarnishing or corroding the slick exterior.
