The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks includes pictures from the LEGO archives

Daniel Konstanski, author of The Secret Life of LEGO Bricks has shared another update on the title, revealing what pictures will populate the pages. 

The update, which was posted to the LEGO Ideas blog, details the next step in the production process for the book and how the LEGO Group is continuing to help along the way. 

“The team who are helping make this book a reality and I realised that being able to show many of the parts and sets I discuss was a necessity,” Daniel says. “To that end, the LEGO Group gave us permission to not only scour their digital archive but also to request images for use in the book.” 

The title, which is set to be the first official LEGO book targeted towards adult fans, has been progressing smoothly so far with a release date planned for 2022, but you only have until May 31 to secure your copy. Daniel goes on to state that there will be a hint of photography involved too. 

“The LEGO Group granted permission to request for them to pull physical artefacts from the archive to photograph if I couldn’t find a good picture of something,” explains the author. “This was an amazing offer, which I have humbly and gratefully accepted.” 

The book will cover the history of the sets that the LEGO Group has produced, with older themes such as Classic Space and Pirates as well as the bricks that make them and how they have changed over the years. We spoke to Daniel Konstanski to find out how the title was coming along and learn about a long-lost theme
