New LEGO Heroes book by former Brick Fanatics editor arriving in 2023

Brick Fanatics‘ former editor has penned a new title for Chronicle Books, demonstrating and chronicling the incredible versatility of LEGO bricks in real-world applications.

Chronicle Books’ newest publication offers a glimpse at the ways LEGO bricks are being used beyond their basic purpose – whether to create artificial limbs, facilitate learning for visually-impaired people or even assist animals in moving around. All these stories and more are the focus of LEGO Heroes, which has been written by former Brick Fanatics editor Graham Hancock.

The book is due to hit shelves on May 16, 2023, and will chronicle innovations including the LEGO Foundation’s Braille bricks and German builder Rita Ebel’s brick-built wheelchair ramps. The front cover, which is not yet finalised, gives us a glimpse at what to expect from the title when it arrives at all good retailers next year.

Its next release is LEGO in Focus, a full-colour book that showcases some of the best LEGO photography from communities including Brick Central and Stuck in Plastic. It’s due to launch on October 13, and is available to pre-order from Amazon now.

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.
