I was looking for a book that showed me what England looked like in Tudor times and this book met my expectations fully. Wonderful photos of interesting buildings with enough history to keep it interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Keepsake Book, Jan. 2 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While I have not yet had time to read the whole thing I have enjoyed the book so far. What is more important to me is that it is a wonderful looking book that seems sure to become a keepsake for our family. The heavy, solid binding is gorgeous. The notes to the stories are entertaining and educational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for all LEGO fans, Feb. 23 2010
This review is from: Lego Book (Hardcover)
This two-volume set is a must-have for any fan of LEGO. The larger of the two gives a visual tour through LEGO's history and features amazing pictures of old and new sets alike. Fun facts and LEGO company history including the story of the founder and his family are presented in a clear and engaging manner. This is great as both an introduction to LEGO for those who are unaware of the large hobby community and as a reference for committed "Adult Fans Of LEGO" (AFOLs). This book alone makes the set worth buying.

The second, smaller book is titled "Standing Small" and is focused on the minifigure - the small LEGO people that have inhabited Legoland for the last 30 years. I found the selection of minifigs pictured to be amusing and representative but far from complete so this is not a catalogue of all minifigs (too many for that in this size of book.) The insights into the production and history of the minifig however were my favorite part of the book. If I had one wish it would be to delve even deeper into the design and creation of these delightful characters.

A good value for the two books, I highly recommend this set.
