The book itself is a hardback which contains 232 pages and retails for $40. Like all other DK books, you know you’ll be getting high quality content as well as crisp images. In collaboration with LEGO and Adam Reed Tucker, The Visual Guide takes a look at the LEGO Architecture sets along with builders and the inspiration behind the set.

The first thing you notice when you first look at the LEGO Architecture: The Visual Guide is the sheer size of it. The book comes with a nice slipcover which features some of the more recognizable Architecture sets.

The book starts off with an introduction with the beginnings of the LEGO Architecture theme which actually started in the 1960s and how LEGO artist Adam Tucker Reed revived the theme. LEGO noticed Adam’s models and were so impressed with his vision that they relaunched the Architecture line in 2008. The book also takes a look at the four LEGO designers who have worked on the theme including Steen Sig Andersen, Rok Zgolin Kobe, Jorn Kristian Thomsen, and Michael Hepp.
