LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy Book Review

About a week ago, I received a copy of DK’s LEGO Star Wars: Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy by Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut. If you’ve search for LEGO photography at one time or another, you’ve probably come across his photos before. It consists of 176 pages filled with his work and retails for $24.99. Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy is a good example of what a coffee table book should be as it is filled with tons of high quality images from the artist.

One thing the book does not consist much of are words, at least the majority of it. The reason is because the book really doesn’t need words. However in the captions, Avanaut sometimes gives you some insight on how the images were created like using various household objects like gypsum and baking powder. Other times, you get a short description of what the scene is about. If you’ve tried LEGO photography before, you know that there’s lots of little details you have to get to find the right composition for the object. Avanaut is one of the many LEGO photographers who has pretty much mastered this craft.

The Behind the Scenes section of the book, it takes you through the life of Avanaut and how he has gotten to this point in his career. It also shows some of his concept art as compared to the final shot. Did you know that one shot took four years and two photoshoots to get right?

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy by Vesa Lehtimäki (Avanaut)

LEGO Star Wars Small Scenes from a Big Galaxy

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.
