5.0 out of 5 stars A Lego Must Have 23 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book!

To be honest the above statement says it all; however, there has to be more than 20 words. You will not find instructions in here, but you will find lots and lots of high quality photos of fabulous Lego art. Models included cover many themes such as Monsters, Aliens, Birds, People , Buildings, Mosaics, Space Ships and much more. There are a few interviews with the artists themselves but this is really a book of photographs. It is impossible to pick a favourite, and even the models in themes I am not that interested in are stunning. There is nothing about this book that is wrong... well perhaps just one thing; there are no aircraft, but perhaps that could form part of a second book.

If you love Lego you will love this book and if you don't but love ingenuity and art then you will love it to... this book has given me so much inspiration!

And finally Mike Doyle, can we have more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for a lifetime 5 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is Lego as art, and why not, if it can inspire someone. Probably most of the pieces are aspirational and if that's what you want and accept, I'd say this book is an investment that will last a long time. (I bought it for a 3 year old lego fan and he liked it, I think it's a book I'll have on my bookshelf for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof if Proof is needed,Lego is more than a Toy 26 Feb 2014

Beautifully presented, crammed full of a variety of colour photos of both Mike's work and that of a slice of the Lego community of fan-builders. I show this to my friends who don't understand what a grown man is doing with Lego in the evenings after his kids have gone to bed! Showcases the talent of the builders featured and ably demonstrates that Lego is an art medium in it's own right. This is your coffee table book if your coffee table is sitting on the floor surrounded by piles of bright bricks and plates, but I have shown it to arty friends who are not into Lego who sang it's praises too. Well worth it.
