How far along is The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks?

The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks author Daniel Konstanski has revealed how far along he is with the first ever officially-sanctioned LEGO book for adults.

As well as being the first venture from the LEGO Group and crowdfunding publisher Unbound, The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks – which was originally voted on by fans – is also shaping up to be the deepest dive we’ve ever seen into the inner workings of the company behind our favourite interlocking brick system.

Case in point: Daniel previously revealed that he has an overwhelming 600 pages of raw transcripts from interviews with LEGO designers, executives and more, all of which he’s now whittling down into the final product. And with the book currently targeting a 2022 release date, the eager fans who have already backed it at Unbound will be glad to hear the project is coming along as planned.

“I’m probably halfway done,” Daniel told Brick Fanatics. “Maybe a little over halfway. Obviously, once I’m done, there’s all the other pieces of it – we’re picking out images, and then it goes through the whole editing process. So there’s still a lot of work to be done once I’m finished with it, but for my part of it, I’m over halfway.”

You’ve got until May 31 to secure your copy of The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks. The book will never see a wide print run, so if you’re interested in discovering those secrets for yourself – including long-lost themes like LEGO Band Booster, which was effectively the company’s take on Guitar Hero – make sure you don’t miss out on the crowdfunding window.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
