LEGO® artist and designer Ekow Nimako shows that this iconic toy has an unexpected and innovative use: recreating beasts found in nature in stunning detail.

LEGO® bricks have fueled the imaginations of aspiring designers and builders for generations. Now it's time for something complete new from Beasts from Bricks, recreating some of the world's rarest and most beautiful animals! This guide book presents illustrated, step-by-step instructions for building 15 animals from around the world: Africa, Europe, Asia, the Arctic, Oceania, Central/South America, the Caribbean, and North America.

Not only does each project show you how to build your favorite animals in awesome detail, but each set of instructions also includes entertaining and educational information about the animal's characteristics and habitat. For example, did you know that the name "rhinoceros" actually means "nose horn"? 

You will also get a bonus gallery of the author, Nimako's, most complex, largest scale animal designs. Will you be able to recreate them someday? There's only one way to find out!

About the Author:

Ekow Nimako studied fine arts at York University in Toronto. An avid builder since childhood, Ekow's first LEGO® installation, Aviarageddon, depicted over 30 species of weaponized birds in flight as a commentary on war culture and its link to species endangerment. The theme of animal extinction was further explored in 2015 with his sculpture Silent Knight, commissioned by the City of Toronto for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. His continuing exhibition, Building Black, investigates the complexities of black identity with artworks that draw from various racial, historical, and folkloric narratives. He lives in Toronto, Canada. See more of his work at www.ekownimako.com

Review:

"The 15 models in the book are fun and use some clever building techniques that will please young builders and adults alike. I especially like the sense of character and movement that Ekow has brought to each of the animals. Another good point is their sturdy nature as each has a display stand of varying style,  making them perfect little desktop buddies. If I was buying this as a gift, I would be tempted to source the bricks for one or two of the models to give with the book. This way, it would be immediately possible to build a model as there are one or two models with more obscure parts..." - brothers-brick.com
