Extraordinary Lego art from around the world

The humble Lego block has come a long way since its inception in the 1940s and in a new book titled Beautiful LEGO, Mike Doyle brings us 200 pages of extraordinary Lego art. Yes, art. Take a look at these incredible structures that put our 40-block “masterpieces” to shame.

The book includes Lego art from all over the world –submitted by users – and sees everything from famous figures to incredible multi-tiered towers on the pages.

And if you’re thinking of attempting the incredible fantasy cityscape on the front cover of this book – just keep in mind that this spectacular creation uses more than 200,000 Lego bricks!
