To some, they are nostalgic plastic bricks. To others, they are a way of life.
This book takes you on an illustrated tour of the LEGO® community and its creations. You'll meet fans from all walks of life, like professional artist Nathan Sawaya, brick filmmaker David Pagano, the enigmatic Ego Leonard, and the many devoted AFOLs (adult fans of Lego) who spend countless hours building their masterpieces.
In this full-color coffee table book, you'll find page after page of photos showcasing the fantastically creative and complex models built by the Lego community. You'll marvel at a life-size stegosaurus, a micro-scale Yankee Stadium, a 22-foot long World War II battleship, a MINDSTORMS powered monster chess set, and a remote-controlled Jawa Sand Crawler (with moving conveyor belt). Visit the conventions where lego fans gather to socialize and show off their work. And discover the serious side of Lego, used in therapy, prototyping, and team building.
Whether you're a card-carrying AFOL or just thinking fondly about that dusty box of Legos in storage, John Baichtal and Joe Meno's look at the world of Lego will inspire you to take out your bricks and build something amazing.
