I LEGO N.Y. [Board book]
By

Rating
"I LEGO N.Y." is a book of LEGO depictions of New York City created by designer and illustrator Christoph Niemann. One day, Niemann wrote the following on Abstract City, his "New York Times" blog: 'During the cold and dark Berlin winter days, I spend alot of time with my boys in their room. And as I look at the toys scattered on the floor, my mind inevitably wanders back to New York'. What followed in the post were photographs of a series of miniature vignettes of New York constructed out of his sons' LEGO sets with Niemann's handwritten captions. The creations are clever and minimalist, capturing both the iconic (Empire State Building) and the everyday (plastic bag caught in a tree branch) using fewer LEGO pieces than one might think possible. This book includes the best of the original images, plus thirteen new images, created exclusively for this book. The resulting collection is a delightful in its simplicity and moving in its ability to capture the spirit of life in New York in so few strokes.
