Book cover

 

Published by Dorling Kindersley, The Lego Book explores the story of how the brand developed from a small family-run business into one of the most popular children’s (and adult’s) toys. It includes fascinating imagery such as a pictorial history of the company’s logos over the years, a selection of which are shown below (1964 logo shown top).

And if that weren’t enough, it also comes with an additional guide, titled Standing Small, which gives a history of 30 years of the Lego mini-figure, including such memorable figures as…

 

…the Lego Town chefs (1998 female chef and 2003 male chef shown)…

 

 

…the Lego Wild West Cavalry Colonel (1996), and Indian Chief (1997)…

 

…the Lego Castle ghost (1997) and hero knight (2005)…
