Phil and Matt, FyreUK, contributors to the Minecraft Construction Handbook said: “We’ve had an awesome time working on this book – we’re passionate about sharing Minecraft techniques and builds, whether through our YouTube videos or the Egmont books. We’ve worked on step-by-step guides for the Construction Handbook, detailing how to create some of the most amazing things in Minecraft. From multi-story houses, to bridges and much, much more, readers can learn techniques used by some of the best builders in Minecraft.”

A note about FyreUK : FyreUK is known as the YouTube Channel that specialises in all Minecraft content, ranging from their invigorating Timelapses to their comedic, Minecraft creation commentaries. When not posting Minecraft videos, the members of FyreUK are hard at work building and creating a whole range of inspiring builds for the channel. FyreUK are guided by the two founders, Matt and Phil. It is their direction and initiative that have brought them a subscriber base of over 200,000 subscribers on their YouTube channel. Starting out as a small-time single player series, the foundations of FyreUK were set with their old channel, FireDragon04, which netted them over 10,000 subscribers in just 2 months of starting Minecraft Timelapses. Today, FyreUK is seen as a foothold within the Minecraft Community with their week-to-week, high quality Minecraft content that displays the effectiveness of art within a canvas of voxels. www.youtube.com/user/FyreUK

About the Author

Mojang is a games studio based in Stockholm, Sweden. Mojang was founded in 2009 by Markus Notch Persson and Jakob Porser. Markus Persson is also the creator of Mojang's best-selling game to date: Minecraft. The alpha version of Minecraft was launched in 2009, and the official game went on sale in 2011. Since then over 100 million copies have been sold, across multiple platforms. It is now the second best-selling video game of all time. In 2014, Mojang was bought by Microsoft. The acquisition hasn't changed much about the company - they still release and support games on multiple platforms, including iOS, Playstation and many more, as well as Windows and Xbox. Mojang plan to keep their independent spirit and continue to treat their community with the respect and honesty it deserves.
