Here’s another LEGO DK book to add to any LEGO fan’s library. Following the announcement of an updated LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, DK has announced another LEGO-themed book that offers a fresh, new perspective on everything that we love about the LEGO brick. The LEGO Book New Edition explores the story of the LEGO Group and its iconic products, just in time with the patented LEGO brick’s 60th anniversary, and the 40th year of the LEGO minifigure. As an added bonus, LEGO and DK publishing is including an exclusive, printed LEGO brick that goes with the book.
Celebrate and explore the incredible story of the LEGO Group and its much-loved bricks, sets, minifigures, movies, games, and more with this updated and expanded edition.
Take a dazzling visual tour through all the groundbreaking moments in LEGO® history, from the company’s humble beginnings in a carpenter’s workshop to the invention of the iconic LEGO brick and LEGO minifigure, through to the stunning toys, video games and movies of today, including LEGO® Star Wars™, THE LEGO® NINJAGO® MOVIE™, and LEGO® Dimensions. This special edition of The LEGO® Book has been fully updated and expanded with the latest LEGO sets and fascinating facts to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick and the 40th anniversary of the minifigure. Go behind the scenes to learn how LEGO bricks are made; find out how amazing fan creations become real-life LEGO sets, and marvel at how LEGO bricks made it to the computer screen and the big screen. Created in full collaboration with the LEGO Group, The LEGO® Book is a treasure trove for LEGO fans of all ages.
Though the image posted in Amazon seems to be a prelim and does not show how this exclusive LEGO brick looks like, I hope it is something different from the 2×4 60th year commemorative plate that LEGO has released with the Build Bigger Thinking sets. I reckon that this exclusive brick may somehow be similar to the commemorative 3M beam that was released together with 2017’s LEGO Technic sets.
The LEGO Book New Edition is now available for pre-order via Amazon, retailing for $25. It is scheduled for release on October 2, 2018.
