Back in March, I reported on a few upcoming LEGO DK books that will be released late this year. One of these books by Finnish LEGO photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut, was tentatively called LEGO Star Wars: Through a Lens but the finalized title of the book is called LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy. It’ll retail for $24.99 and has 176 pages and will be released on November 10.
If you’re into LEGO photography, you’ve probably heard of Avanaut’s work as it has also been used in the LEGO The Hobbit set promotions. I think LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy will make a very nice coffee table book as it can show off what a person with a camera and LEGO can do with some imagination. Obviously, Avanaut is just a one person in the popular LEGO photography community and this book may be a stepping stone to introduce more people into the hobby.
LEGO® Star Wars® sets and minifigures come to life in this beautiful photography book.
Created by Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki using his son’s favorite toys, the book features painstaking recreations of classic movie moments and hilarious new takes on fan-favorite characters and themes. Informative captions give technical details for each scene, while anecdotes from Lehtimäki offer background insights to his creative process.
LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy is a breathtaking new look at a timeless icon that allows fans to see their favorite minifigures from the classic saga in an exciting new way.
