My new book: Beautiful Lego

I'm very proud to announce the release of my first book, Beautiful Lego by NoStarch Press. This book is a first of it's kind as it's a coffee table art book format Lego book. While many other Lego books have been released, they all are either on the industry or focused on how to build specific pieces. Beautiful Lego was designed like an art book with minimal copy and gorgeous pictures of works from designers around the world. In total, there are 350 pieces, over 70 designers and around 400 photos in this 282 page book. Works range from huge, epic scale pieces to simple micro scale builds with 30 or so pieces. Images in the book are unique as they have all been retouched, color corrected and, in many cases, a background added from the original photo. For this reason, the pieces have never looked so good. If you know of someone who likes Lego it makes a great gift for kids and adults alike.

It has been getting great reception with write ups in The Wall Street Journal, Reader's Digest, The Los Angeles Times, Slate,, Wired online, USA Today, MAKE and others.
