The Cult of Lego

Introducing The Cult of Lego

From No Starch Press:

The Cult of LEGO introduces us to fans and builders from all walks of life. People like professional LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya; enigmatic Dutch painter Ego Leonard (who maintains that he is, in fact, a LEGO minifig); Angus MacLane, a Pixar animator who builds CubeDudes, instantly recognizable likenesses of fictional characters; Brick Testament creator Brendan Powell Smith, who uses LEGO to illustrate biblical stories; and Henry Lim, whose work includes a series of models recreating M.C. Escher lithographs and a full-scale, functioning LEGO harpsichord.

Marvel at spectacular LEGO creations like:

  • A life-sized Stegosaurus and an 80,000-brick T. Rex skeleton
  • Detailed microscale versions of landmarks like the Acropolis and Yankee Stadium
  • A 22-foot long, 350-pound re-creation of the World War II battleship Yamato
  • A robotic, giant chess set that can replay historical matches or take on an opponent
  • A three-level, remote-controlled Jawa Sandcrawler, complete with moving conveyor belt

Whether you’re a card-carrying LEGO fanatic or just thinking fondly about that dusty box of LEGO in storage, The Cult of LEGO will inspire you to take out your bricks and build something amazing.

Our Thoughts

If you are a Lego fan then this coffee table book is just the thing for you.  It provides an awesome history of LEGO along with amazing pictures of LEGO creations.  My husband would have a LEGO room if I let him, but unfortunately we do not have the space.  However, he is absolutely in love with this book and is eager to pass the love of LEGO’s on to our 4 year old son.  The Cult of LEGO is not just a history of LEGO for someone that wants to learn about LEGO.  It is a book about those that are engrossed in the “life of LEGO”.  It is more in depth than I ever would have imagined, however, still worth having if LEGOS are an interest to anyone in your family.  This book has incredible photos of almost anything your imagination can come up that has been created from LEGOS.   It is a perfect holiday present for someone that is immersed in the world of LEGO.
