About the Book:
Capturing the boundless creativity of the LEGO® brand, this colorful book recreates objects and scenes from everyday life using LEGO bricks. Transforming handfuls of bricks into minty toothpaste, eggs and bacon, lush houseplants, and more, LEGO Still Life reimagines the mundane and sparks playfulness in everyday life. Featuring unique, clever, and captivating original art, these deceptively simple but meticulously executed images are full of surprise and delight—and remind us that the world around us is, too.
• Recreates commonplace scenes from everyday life using LEGO® bricks
• Creatively reimagines the everyday objects and scenes
• Presented without text, these clever images speak for themselves, offering joy, surprise, and creativity on each spread
LEGO Still Life is the perfect gift for LEGO lovers and art lovers alike. Watch LEGO bricks transform into everyday objects, turning the humdrum into a delightful surprise.
Anyone who loves LEGO®, photography or just plain enjoys looking at the magnificent colours will surly love this book! I couldn't believe how life-like some of the LEGO® pieces were and how beautiful the photographs came out. This is definitely an art form.
This would make an amazing coffee table book. Who hasn't heard of LEGO®!? This would be cool to have in the house and would make a great, fun conversation starter. Both my boys (30 and 36 now) loved it as kids and would love this book as it brings back happy memories. I still have some of their LEGO® and DUPLO® from when they were babes. I would recommend this to any and all age groups.
My favourite photos are of the make-up, the bouquet of flowers and the painting pallet.
My only niggle is about the ARC copy...it has a watermark on EVERY SINGLE PHOTO and it made it hard to enjoy them as much as I could have.
