Steampunk and LEGO is like a match made in heaven. No Wait. What am I talking about? LEGO is a match made in heaven with anything, but I, if not all of us here, have this special affinity for steampunk stuff and to associate this fabulous subject with LEGO is like the best thing since the invention of these wonderful plastic bricks. If you’re on the same page as us, then we think you should really be keeping your eyes out for the Steampunk LEGO by Guy Himber (No Starch Press, ISBN 978-1-59327-528-0) coming your way later this November. Culminated in this 200-page hardcover coffee table book are Steampunk LEGO creations by dozens of different artists from across the world, as curated by LEGO builder and special effects master Guy Himber.
Excited? I sure am and my bet is, if you’ve gotten this far, you are too. There is a little note though. This isn’t your usual LEGO books with either spread of beautiful images with short captions or build instructions; instead, this book will bring on a journey through the fictional, sci-fi Queen Victoria-era where each awesome Steampunk creation is presented in a story format, presented in a worn-out, journal look. Absolutely befitting, don’t you think? Whether you’re a LEGO MOC enthusiast or simply one that appreciate LEGO art form, we think Steampunk LEGO by Guy Himber will set your steampunk gears (and cogs) in motion. The Steampunk LEGO by Guy Himber is set to be available on November 22 and if you can’t wait, you can pre-order yours today for just $18.94 under the pre-order price guarantee by Amazon. Go check it out. Sample pages after the break.
