Book Review: Beautiful LEGO...




T’s the season to be giving your LEGO fans amazing LEGO books! Here is one LEGO book they will definitely enjoy.



Beautiful LEGO by Mike Doyle, No Starch Press 2013 – is indeed a “beautiful” book of over 275 pages of remarkable LEGO creations. It is a LEGO Art book of sculptures, magnificent buildings, whimsical characters, bizarre, and futuristic models.  Just about all styles of building are represented from the colossus City of Odan by Mike Doyle, the author, to Vignettes, to mini builds, to mosaics, to Cube Dudes, to Macha, to cars, to sci-fi.



The photos of the LEGO artwork are in full, beautiful color (except for a few works by Doyle in black & white, which may be for the effect). There are 77 artists represented including Agnes MacLane, and two I have had the pleasure of meeting at their showings of their works – Nathan Sawaya and Arthur Gugick; and many more some I honestly never heard of, but through this book I am introduced to and will look for more of their works.



This is one book LEGO fans “must” have in their collection. And if you are a LEGO fan yourself, send a “hint” to family & friends or just treat yourself to this “Beautiful LEGO” book.
