If anyone ever accused us of having too many Lego’s in our home, they would be absolutely correct. My son is just obsessed with them (remember the lego cake he had to have for his birthday?)and it’s the one toy he consistently plays with on a daily basis. We have seen so much creativity come to life in our home because of it, so when I was asked if I wanted to review a copy of the book The Cult of Lego, I agreed immediately.
The Cult of Lego is written by John Baichtal, a contributor to MAKE magazine and Wired’s GeekDad blog, and Joe Meno, who is the founder of BrickJournal, a print and online LEGO fan magazine. This book is filled with beautiful photos and tells the story of the Lego community, it’s people, and their creations.
AFOL’s (Adult Fans of Lego) and kids alike will enjoy this book. Besides featuring some of the most amazing creations ever made with Legos (think life-sized stegosaurus’, for one) it also highlights conventions, collectors and their collections, and even how Legos are used in therapy with autistic children. There’s definitely something to interest everyone in this book and it would definitely make a great gift for any Lego enthusiast this holiday season. The book is 304 pages and is $39.95 USD, published by No Starch Press.
