Matt "Monsterbrick" Armstrong -- he of the epic Lego Room in Wednesday's post -- is working on a neo-Victorian series of models. Each of these models, like the stunning typewriter above, is constructed solely of Lego -- but perfectly and amazingly. They represent both the look and the soul of the device. My favorites include his bellows camera, his meerschaum pipe, and his utterly elegant phone.
