Brick History: A Brick History of the World in LEGO®

LEGO bricks have gone well past children’s building toy and into the realm of legitimate artistic medium at this point. There are art books collecting images of LEGO creations, the entire Bible has been rendered in LEGO form, and now, historical moments are being reimagined and realized in glorious blocky fashion.

Brick History explores key moments from history as disparate as Guy Fawkes and the Panama Canal to walking on the moon and the “I Have a Dream” speech, lovingly brought to life with LEGO bricks and mini-figures. Whether they’re built in micro-scale or minifig scale, these historical tableaus are brilliantly executed and full of clever use of familiar bricks and shapes.

Not only that, but you get complete instructions on how to build items representative of those crucial historical moments. An apple for Isaac Newton, a pickaxe for the Gold Rush. There are British warships and smallpox vaccines, painter’s palettes and voting boxes, sextants and telegraphs, Gutenberg’s press and Da Vinci’s flying machine. Heck, even a LEGO Gandhi!

Complete with two gorgeous fold-out posters and all sorts of historical trivia, Brick History is a testament to creative ingenuity and endless imagination.
