LEGO has been a part of my life for as a long as I can remember. Many of my best childhood memories have something to do with those tiny plastic bricks. I vividly remember the Christmas of 1988 when my parents bought me every single set from the Castle line. I spent an entire week building and rebuilding two of my all time favorite sets 6085 Black Monarch’s Castle and the 6054 Forestmen’s Hideout.
With having a Kindle there are very few instances where I actually buy physical books (sorry Borders), but when I saw early reviews for The Cult of LEGO I knew I had to make an exception. In the Cult of LEGO Biachtal and Meno do a great job of touching on the cultural impact that the LEGO Group have had across the world.
A great layout and fantastic photographs highlight some of the most iconic sets produced by the LEGO Group and some of the staggering creations by AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO). The Cult of LEGO will appeal to the broad spectrum of fans and is deserving of a place of honor on any nerd’s coffee table.
