The book begins historically, emotionally and then inspirationally, demonstrating through real people, photos of their work and website links, just how Lego has touched their lives. The book itself is like a Lego Convention in your hands, showcasing some of the most amazing plastic creations ever thought up. It covers topics only serious fanatics could relate to: customized Lego (subject matter not covered by the Lego canon), building operational objects out of Lego elements (cameras, electriic guitars, computer cases), household rooms devoted to mammoth Lego storage with their respective archival storage systems, fine art tributes and my favorite...an entire chapter devoted to the wildly popular Lego minifig. Impressive feats such as a 20-foot long Lego Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton and a highly detailed 1.3 million brick soccer stadium at Germany's LEGOLAND Deutschland theme park demonstrate Lego creations at their finest. Weighing 1.5 tons and holding an astounding 30,000 minifigs, the stadium model images shown in this book are beyond amazing.
If I had to make one criticism, it would be about the gridless, unrefined book design.Read more ›
A glowingly-resplendent book, and one that fills Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL's) with a great measure of pride and merriment!
This books author is a proud and dedicated Lego aficionado, and this wonderful book encompasses the `compartmentalized-dorkism' of this wonderful hobby!
I am thankful that this book was published, it is a fantastic read.
A wonderful Lego book!
