Yay! Lego Books!

// February 15th, 2010 // Obsessions

Just received a couple of Lego books in the mail that I ordered 6 weeks ago from Amazon. Very exciting!

The first is one I actually bought for my dad for his birthday in December. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and had to get it for myself…

It’s called simply “The Lego Book” and is a history, guide and tribute to Lego. Did you know that the Lego company was founded in 1916 by a Danish carpenter? At first he made furniture, but in 1932 he switched to children’s toys. The company did really well out of pull-along toys before inventing the Lego brick in 1949. Anyway there is a lot of good stuff in it as well as beautiful full colour photos. And if that wasn’t enough, it comes with a BONUS book “Standing Small” which is a tribute to 30 years of the Lego mini-figure!



This is also a very cool book, very comprehensive, with beautiful photos, and both are hardcover and come in a cardboard sleeve. I recommend it!

The other book I got was a more practical one, The Unofficial Lego Builder’s Guide.

Not only does the book provide several cool projects, but it empowers you to build your own models with lots of construction tips and tricks. It looks like a goldmine of handy information.

I know what I’m doing tonight!
