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!
Particularly good for a coffee table book to flick through.
