LEGO and UK book publishing giant Dorling-Kindersley (DK) have been hand in hand for years and decades in the creation of official LEGO books for children and everybody else. These volumes by DK range from general books with LEGO themes, to handy references to the infinite diversity of LEGO products. Speaking of references, there is also THE reference book for all general knowledge of LEGO published by DK. This is emphasized by the title itself, The LEGO Book. It was first released in 2012 and now, some six years later, DK is reprinting it as The LEGO Book New Edition just in time with the numerous milestones that the LEGO Group is celebrating for this year.
The timing of Dorling-Kindersley’s The LEGO Book New Edition this 2018 is of course, in synergy with the ongoing milestone celebrations of the entire LEGO brand. If you recall, that’s the 60th Anniversary of the Brick, and 40th Anniversary of the Minifigure. What better time to reintroduce this big book?
With 280 pages between the covers, there’s enough to cover everything one needs to know about LEGO, from its beginnings to the latest developments in this year of LEGO milestones. In the same fashion as its fellow DK books, there’s also a front-cover freebie: an iconic red 2×4 LEGO brick.
DK’s The LEGO Book New Edition is due to arrive in bookstores on October 2, but you can pre-order it now on online markets like Amazon, where it’s priced at $25. It will no doubt be a welcome addition (or update to the original) on an LEGO-fan family’s library.
