Review for LEGO Still Life with Bricks: The Art of Everyday Play

LEGO Still Life with Bricks: The Art of Everyday Play, Lydia Ortiz, Michelle Clair, Lego, Gumball Machine, Photography, Blue, ArtI received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I just LOVE LOVE Lego, love building it, love looking at builds people make, love buying new sets. So this book just made me very happy and hyped. I was eager to see what kind of things would would see in this book.

This book combines daily items (or scenes) with legoblocks. We see a breakfast with baconstrips made of lego, a big cup of orange-lego-block-juice, we see paintcans and paint, there is jam on a toast. There were some really great photographs there, like the feet in the sand with lego as water/surf. It was really fun seeing normal items be combined with lego and form a pretty awesome picture. I also liked seeing before/after like with the balloons, first there are three, then there is a needle and there is just two balloons left.

But I have to say that there were parts that I had to look really hard to find what was made out of lego or it felt like it was just mostly normal stuff and not much lego, and I think that was a shame. And others were just, in my eyes, not that special. Like the picnic… it is that I know that ants come to picnics, otherwise I would have wondered what the hell it was meant to be.

My favourite out of this book would be seeing the plant grow, but I was also fan of the cocktails and the ice cream.

All in all, I had fun reading this one and I wouldn’t mind more books like this one.

Star rating, 4 stars
