Beautiful Lego

In "Beautiful Lego," Mike Doyle showcases dozens of stunning pieces of Lego art created by a variety of artists. From fantastical buildings -- like Doyle's own "Contact 1: The Millennial Celebration of the Eternal Choir at K'ai Yne, Odan" -- to spaceships, animals, scenes from Tolkien, and much more, the book is a treat for any Lego fan.
