'Building a History - The LEGO Group' book review

We’ve managed to get our hands on a brand new book called ‘Building A History - The LEGO Group’ and guess what...it’s all about LEGO! It’s by British writer, editor and LEGO lover Sarah Herman who has written for Total Film, Star Wars Insider and the official magazines for TV shows including Lost, Heroes and Torchwood.

Thought you were already the number one LEGO expert..? Well we bet you’ll be amazed at all of the new and exciting things you’ll discover in this book.

The book is hugely informative and reveals so much about one of the  greatest  toys of all time. It takes us on a journey throughout the decades from the humble origins in the workshop of a Danish carpenter, through to how LEGO has become the market-leading brand it is today. It also has lots of building tips for budding LEGO enthusiasts, including advice on how to structure different creations such as buildings and vehicles.

We’re sure you’ll  enjoy reading this book if you’re as mad about LEGO as we are, so why not give it a read? Building a History, the LEGO Group by Sarah Herman is out now.
