LEGO Ideas opens vote for the first AFOL LEGO book

Fans can vote on LEGO Ideas on a book for AFOLs that will celebrate the history of the LEGO brick.

LEGO Publishing is collaborating with AMEET and Unbound to release a new book for AFOLs about the history of the LEGO brick, which will be written by Blocks magazine’s US Editor and former Brick Fanatics contributor Daniel Konstanki. Making things more interesting for fans, there are three options for the book to vote on at LEGO Ideas.

The three options are Brick Museum, 100 Bricks That Built LEGO History and Secret Life of LEGO Bricks. AFOL ambassadors helped to select the subject matter for the potential titles.

In a press release, the LEGO Group explains more about what the selected title will contain: “each of the three book ideas is a different spin on showcasing the extraordinary variety of LEGO elements, from monorail tracks and wheels to smart bricks, the Mask of Life from BIONICLE, and many more. These elements and the beloved sets they appeared in will provide the springboard to tell stories from the designers, managers and technicians who brought them to life, showcased with artefacts from the LEGO Archive in Billund, Denmark.”

Fans can head over to LEGO Ideas and vote for their favourite concept, as well as suggesting elements they would like to see in the book. All votes must be in by 4.00pm CEST on August 9. Once the title is selected, the book will be available on crowd-funding platform Unbound.

“We are thrilled to be working closely with the AFOL community to identify, co-create, and publish unique books that satisfy the great thirst for knowledge of our adult fans,” says Robin James Pearson, Head of Publishing at The LEGO Group. “There have been a number of books published about The LEGO Group and the LEGO brick over the years, but this is the first time we have had the opportunity to work directly with the adult fan community to discover what titles that they would like to see on their bookshelves.”
