LEGO is arguably the most popular toy in the world. But for some people, it’s a way of life, even long after they’ve grown. In The Cult of LEGO, published by No Starch Press, Wired‘s GeekDad blogger John Baichtal and BrickJournal founder Joe Meno take readers on a magnificent, illustrated tour of the LEGO community, its people, and their creations.
The Cult of LEGO introduces readers to fans and builders from all walks of life. People like professional LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya; enigmatic Dutch painter Ego Leonard (who maintains that he is, in fact, a LEGO minifig); Angus MacLane, a Pixar animator who builds CubeDudes, instantly recognizable likenesses of fictional characters; Brick Testament creator Brendan Powell Smith, who uses LEGO to illustrate biblical stories; and Henry Lim, whose work includes a series of models recreating M.C. Escher lithographs and a full-scale, functioning LEGO harpsichord. Whether you’re a card-carrying LEGO fanatic or just thinking fondly about that dusty box of LEGO in storage, The Cult of LEGO will inspire you to take out your bricks and build something amazing.
