Bricks Culture 2: Out Now



Bricks Culture 2: Out Now
Issue 2 of Bricks Culture, the LEGO pop culture magazine for adults, is now available for order from republic66media.com. 
Once again this lavish coffee-table publication delivers 140-pages of stunning visuals and in-depth analysis covering the artists, innovators and entrepreneurs working in the LEGO field.
Our guest artists Chris McVeigh, James Pegrum and Cole Blaq all return with more beautiful LEGO creations whilst Andy Morris exclusively reveals ...his human-sized LEGO ice cream sculptures. We speak to the entire team behind one of the most stunning fan-made books ever created to find out what really goes into making a successful LEGO sci-fi book. We also meet the man who turned a small raffle on a fan forum into a registered charity delivering LEGO sets to sick children worldwide, and another who has carved out a freelance career illustrating comics for the LEGO Club Magazine.

The fan designer of the most recently-announced LEGO Ideas set, Jason Allemann, writes for us about the scientific challenges he faced creating his hopping animal models. Mike Doyle and David Alexander Smith both contribute deeply reflective pieces on the nature of LEGO bricks, art and the role of storytelling. Our new correspondent in Denmark, Julie Broberg, introduces us to a Senior Design Manager at the LEGO Group, Simon Lucas, and interviews the popular New Zealand-based photographer Harley Quin. We also invited all the photographers featured in our first issue back to shoot the special white Boba Fett minifigure.
