    One thought on “Beautiful LEGO”

    1. As a child, I'm certain that I swallowed at least one small Lego brick. I don't know that it ever passed through the digestive tract. More than likely, it's lodged around a corner in my large intestine somewhere, waiting to kill me. But I'm certain I'm not alone. A straw poll, solidly scientific in its execution (I asked friends and co-workers) shows that most males believe they swallowed at least one Lego during their childhood. What are the archaeologists going to think?"Clearly, this little p [...]

    2. I don't ever recall having Legos as a child, though I do remember having Tinker Toys and Lincoln Logs. Oh, and two brothers. I honestly don't remember anyone having Legos and as a result of that, I don't love them the way my children (and billions of others) do. What I do love, though, is creativity and it is impossible to not respect and appreciate the abundance of planning, foresight, creativity, vision, dedication, and work that went into the incredible creations on these pages. Some are sill [...]

    3. ein sehr beeindruckendes buch, welches deutlich zeigt, welches ernsthaft kreative potential in legosteinen stecktnche der ideen sind einfach grandios, andere weniger aber die bandbreite ist wirklich enorm.

    4. This book shows some amazing feats of LEGO construction. I’m truly impressed. As a new nanoblock builder I can’t even imagine myself building things on this scale.

    5. This made a great Christmas present for my husband, who loves Legos as much as our sons. But after a few look-throughs, he was ready for it to sit on the coffee table. But then my son took it upstairs to the Lego corner of his bedroom and poured over before bedtime. And my husband has never seen it since.

    6. The title is no lie, these are beautiful Lego models. If you thought Legos were just for creating what is on the box, you need to check this out.

    7. Brilliant book which will inspire, amaze and motivate LEGO fans both young and old! Shows the great skill and incredible pieces of art which can be created with the humble brick. Highly recommended.

    8. This is a beautiful and inspiring book. The pictures are works of art. Some majestic in scale, some more at the level that you can imagine someone actually doing, if they had the artistic vision these creators did!I like LEGO because of the ability to create. I remember as a young boy soon after a move using LEGO to build a model of my old house, with each floor, stairs, and every room represented. With my son, we have DUPLO's that have not gotten old. Some of the things we have made for him hav [...]

    9. My first book up in the very interesting No Starch Press Humble Book Bundle. I do love the way a Humble Bundle can introduce a wider audience to the work of a smaller publisher like this and this particular one was packed full of titles i am looking forward to getting stuck into.Beautiful Lego proved to be an excellent introduction for me into the world of free form Lego art. I knew this was something which existed but this was my first real exposure to exactly what it involved.Doyle interviews [...]

    10. An amazing book filled to the brim with marvelous images of LEGO creations by various people.In this book, you will find miniature and large people, creatures and monsters; enormous creations thousand of LEGO bricks large; recreations of famous buildings, people and situations; works of art and works of imagination.The images usually show one or two LEGO models, but some show close-up details of some of the larger LEGO creations, allowing you to get a glimpse of just how it was put together usin [...]

    11. After reading, The Art of the Brick by Sawaya, I was intrigued by Legos as an art form and wanted to see more. This book, however, is not at the same level as Sawaya's work. Sawaya does amazing fine art with Legos. And although this book shows a couple of Sawaya's pieces, I would consider this more of an idea book. It is 263 pages of pictures of things people have made from Legos including aliens, intriguing architectural designs, monsters, characters and every day objects. If you have a die har [...]

    12. Reading this book made me want to go out and buy a bunch of LEGO to try and make something remotely as awesome as the people in this book do. I never really thought of LEGO as an art form, but this book really amazed me, because everyone starts with the same right-angled bricks, and each person creates something completely different from the next. The LEGO creations in this book span from something as simple as a sandwich, to entire fantasy-based villages. Space travel and battle bots weren't re [...]

    13. I'm a long time Lego fan and this book is totally amazing. Mostly I use just regular bricks in my designs, but the majority of the wonderful Lego creations in this book show off the versatility of the non-brick pieces.When I look at the models I am first just astounded. Then I look closer to identify the pieces they use and wonder how it occurred to the artist to use that piece for that purpose. Then I look closer still and wonder how on are earth the builder hooked them all together. This long [...]

    14. First thing first, this is not an instructional book. It wont give you clues on how to make anything. That being said, what some people can do with Lego's is beyond amazing. Some of the images will make you disbeleive they are made with the small plastic peices. And the scale of some of the creations is beyond impressive. So, depending on what your looking for will determin if you like this book. Want to have hints on how to design and create things with lego's? Avoid this. Like art and lokking [...]

    15. Lego's have been a fascination of mine since I was a small boy. I was always amazed at how you could take these blocks and build just about anything. This is probably the foundation for why I was drawn to engineering. In this book, I was amazed at how far people could take lego art. It is truly wonderful how the human mind can design and build such wondrous things with just plastic blocks that can be linked together. I recommend this book to all lego fans. It has the ability to awe and inspire.

    16. This is a very nicely done art book showcasing loads of AFOL (adult fan of LEGO) artwork. It just so happens that the medium for this artwork is LEGO. That's right a little plastic brick that most people only see as a child's toy. The artists in this book see those bricks as people, cars, robots, spaceships, buildings and so much more. Find out why the artists chose LEGO as their medium while you marvel at their creative talents.

    17. I don't understand how some of these things could have been made with LEGOs, but they are incredibly cool nonetheless. There are plenty of the spaceships and action figures you'd expect, but also rotary phones, crumbling Victorian mansions, cathedrals, birds, dogs, Chinese landscapes, classic cars, scenes from Monty Python skits and Miyazaki movies, and figures like Cap'n Crunch and Stephen Hawking. Fun and inspirational (makes me wish I were more creative).

    18. Talented Lego artists and hobbyists share their amazing work and challenge how we view this classic childhood toy. Lego is a medium as versatile and challenging as wood, or marble, or plaster, or paint, and can yield masterpieces from those with patience, talent and imagination. After lingering on this stunning works, you'll be inspired to break out your old (or current) Lego bricks and try your had at something new and uniquely you!

    19. Being a AFOL I had to check out this book. There are some beautiful lego art pieces shown within. And a few AFOL artists as well. My area of interest lies in mosaics, spacecraft and robots. There are a few of each category in this book. A nice showcase of what others are doing and what can be done in lego.

    20. Mike Doyle had the talent and good fortune to grow up and become a LEGO master builder! He put together a collection of impressive LEGO models and artworks by many artists and builders. I liked that they weren't all grandiose - some were cool because they were so tiny and concise. This book was a joy and would also make a great gift for a teen or adult.

    21. art books (books of art work) are nearly impossible for me to rate on a star system. if you like LEGO (or ever did) it's great even if you just look at the pictures (which are the primary subject matter). it's so cool to see the variety of work, the scale and the detail even in the smallest things.

    22. It's fascinating to look at these imaginative and intricately detailed works of art made of Lego bricks! Doyle covers a variety of types of creations. He also asked some of the more prolific designers, "Why Lego?" Their answers are all different, but much alike in that they all find it fascinating to visualize a creation, then figure out how to build it using available Lego pieces.

    23. Amazing work! While I generally knew that there are artists out there who work with Legos as a medium, I had no idea that there were so many and that their work was so diverse and complex. The front cover alone is more than worth the price of the book. Just unreal and astounding work

    24. Really neat designs. A good book that will help you think outside the box in terms of using the stock pieces.
