After the enthusiastic response that our Lego calendar blog post recently received, it is with great excitement that we bring you…The Lego Book.
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)…
…the Lego Star Wars Anakin Skywalker (2002), Darth Maul (2000), and Jar Jar Binks (1999)….
…and the Lego Indiana Jones (2008).
Essentially if you’re into Lego, this book will offer you all the information (and possibly more) that you will need. More info on the book is here.
