Chronicle Books adds to the LEGO collection with new books, more
Chronicle Books has gathered more surprises in its continued collaboration with the LEGO Group. After bringing LEGO creativity to books, puzzles, stationery, games and more from 2020, Chronicle Books introduces more fun for brick enthusiasts.
First, The art of the minifigure by Brian Barrett ($35) is a guide that celebrates the history, design and timelessness of one of the most recognizable toys – the LEGO minifigure. The guide features interviews and essays, stunning photography and exclusive visuals straight from the LEGO archives.
Following, Build every day: spark your creativity and find your rhythm by Alec Posta ($16.95) offers inspiring lessons in creativity, perspective and process taught through LEGO construction. Each illustrated chapter in this book explores one of these concepts and includes a building prompt that puts the concept into practice. For example, the Build Every Day chapter encourages daily creativity and invites the reader to set a timer and build each day for a week.
Speaking of creativity, Master Builder’s Notebook ($16.95, top of photo) is the perfect place to plan, write, sketch, and dream up new ideas with lined, squared, and dotted pages. This guided notebook is also filled with LEGO facts, quotes, building prompts and goal markers to encourage LEGO enthusiasts to become master builders.
Budding master builders can also track their journey with the LEGO 2023 Daily Build Calendar ($15.99, top photo). This full-color calendar features daily instructions and new building ideas for LEGO builders of all skill levels. These daily prompts don’t require any new sets because builders can use the LEGO bricks they already own.
The LEGO 2023 Wall Calendar ($14.99), meanwhile, puts a modern spin on classic LEGO bricks and themes with monthly images of bold brick-based designs, minifigure compositions and patterns.
Finally, the IDEAS Minifigure Space Mission 1,000 Piece Puzzle ($17.95) is out of this world. This puzzle features a fan-submission and vote-winning design from LEGO Ideas and has a clever space theme.
LEGO builders can celebrate their love for bricks with all of these new products, which are available for pre-order on the Chronicle Books website and at major retailers now. These products should all be shipped by the end of the year.
