New LEGO books coming out soon from DK Publishing

If you loved the Ultimate LEGO Book, you just might like these as well.

This is a scan from a European DK Publishing catalog. If you read the fine print it looks like it will actually be two books: The Ultimate Guide and the Minifigure Book and will be available for 25 euros. No word yet on if this will be available in the states, but I really hope so.

When I got the Ultimate LEGO Book, I spent hours and hours pouring over the high definition images of the LEGO models, never expecting that I would one day actually work on them. The book and LEGOLAND California were made about the same time, so a good majority of the models that were originally installed in the park are in the Ultimate LEGO Book as examples of LEGO building.

I even have a good friend who is a Master Model Builder over in Denmark that is pictured in the book. You can see him most clearly working on the New Orleans Miniland steam boat Season.

Hopefully these two books will be as good a resource for LEGO fans of all ages.
