The book is done in full color on heavy paper stock and feels and looks high quality. It’s an excellent “coffee table book”. When people see the cover they will immediately want to look inside.
Inside they will find hundreds of wonderful photos of LEGO sculptures that range in size from just a few bricks and a few inches high to complex life-sized sculptures containing thousands of bricks. The sculptures are very diverse and cover all sorts of subjects - from wildlife, to pop-culture characters, to architecture. Each sculpture is fascinating to look at, and to appreciate not only the overall appearance, but also the artists’ creative use of various LEGO bricks. As a child who would always follow the instructions, seeing the creative and wonderful things that people can do when they don’t, is inspiring and fun.
As if the wonderful images weren’t enough there are also interviews with the artists scattered throughout the book that are very informative and enjoyable.
All in all… it’s amazing what can be done with simple LEGO bricks.
Her mother says she falls asleep at night with the book. What a smashing success this one was.
Since I only had the opportunity to look at a few pages I can't comment extensively on what's in the book. You'll have to take my granddaughter's word for it..."Awesome!"
The variety of artists represented in this coffee table tome is impressive: ranging from those who have perfected Lego replication of the household mundane to those who create full-on mythical landscapes like Doyle himself. The one thing all these artists have in common is the keen ability to think outside the brick. If you’re feeling like you need some Lego inspiration to expand your horizons, this is definitely the book for you. Below is a small sampling of the artists and works Doyle showcases.
I have loved Lego's ever since I was 2 or 3 years old and now I'm about to turn 40! I just ordered this book as a gift for a contractor friends of mine who just finished a major remodel and I thought he deserved an awe inspiring coffee table book for his home.
Hat's off to the contributors of this book! The pictures in this book are phenomenal and amazing! Such beautiful and mind blasting creations! I guarantee you will not want to put this book down!
I want to go to my parents house and dig out my old Lego's that are in storage and build a masterpiece!
