San Francisco, CA (June 19, 2015) — Hailed as a “stunning array” by TODAY and “a feast for the senses” by Wired, the Beautiful LEGO series is back with a new collection of breathtaking art. The highly anticipated Beautiful LEGO: Wild! (No Starch Press, $24.95, 232 pp., September 2015) is brimming with imaginative and vibrant masterpieces from the most talented LEGO builders in the world.
From adorable pets and marine critters to magnificent arboreal landscapes, the creations in Beautiful LEGO: Wild! are sure to delight the artist, naturalist, and LEGO enthusiast in everyone.
Interviews with LEGO masters give readers an exclusive look into the minds behind the art. For featured builder Sean Kenney, creating art with LEGO is more than just connecting pieces—it’s capturing the essence of a subject: “It has to have life. My sculptures need to be rooted in personal expression.” One of Kenney’s pieces, Monarch, is made from more than 60,000 LEGO pieces.
Tom Poulsom, whose amazing bird sculptures became an official LEGO set this year, explains the appeal of working in such an unusual medium. “To me, LEGO is the best puzzle in the world. There are infinite combinations, and it’s possible to create pretty much anything your mind can imagine.”
According to No Starch Press founder Bill Pollock, “Readers love to see their hobbies come to life. The Beautiful LEGO books are the perfect addition to any geek or art lover’s coffee table.”
Beautiful LEGO: Wild! will be available in bookstores everywhere this September.
