Beautiful Lego 2: Dark
As many of you know, I've been working on the long awaited followup book to Beautiful Lego…
I'm pleased to announce that the book is printing and will be available in November of this year. Much thanks to all who participated – the book is about you all! This volume is larger than the last with 340 or so pages (compared to 280), has more images (425 compared to 380 or so) and many more contributors (140 vs around 75). Additionally, the book is hard bound which will add to the richness of the set.
I decided to build this series out thematically. Each book will explore a different theme and have its own personality. After Dark, I hope to explore themes such as 'bright' (lighter, playful and fun), nature and characters/personalities.
BL2: Dark explores some of the darker moc creations I've seen with chapters including: Creepy Crawlers, Biomimicry, Future Shock, Dragon Lore, Evil Attunement, Skin and Bones, Dark Towers, Greed Co., Unlimited and Patriot Axe, to name a few. Also, we take a look at the lighter side of dark with Ocean Depths, Indulgences, Mythos and Little Spooks. The book was quite an endeavor to create in just 6 months, but, in the end, I'm very proud of this one. It's gorgeous looking and a fitting complement to BL.
