No Starch Press has become the go-to publisher for fans of LEGO who want something a little more than the mass market books that LEGO itself puts out. LEGO's official publications are understandably geared toward children, which is as it should be. No Starch Press has tapped into the market of adults who are either nostalgic enough to remember how much they loved LEGO, or who are rediscovering playing with LEGO themselves, or that rarest of adult--the ones who see LEGO as an artistic medium in its own right. This last group of people are highlighted in Mike Doyle's "Beautiful LEGO: Wild!"This is Doyle's third "Beautiful LEGO" book, following the original and "Beautiful LEGO: Dark." All three have Doyle more as a curator of the best LEGO builds from around the world than an author. He includes a few of his own pieces in the mix, but most of these models are things that are clearly labors of love by other Adult Fans Of LEGO (AFOLs). These artists have found ways to use LEGO to make sculptures and mosaics of landscapes, birds, fish, insects, cartoon characters, and mythical creatures, all under the overarching theme of "Wild."In the preface, Doyle writes that "Seeing how simple shapes combine to give the illusion of a bigger picture is exciting." The way the builders do that varies, and you can see the how the styles of different artists impact how they use these plastic bricks to create organic shapes.Some favorite pieces:Peacock, by Sean Kenney -- using only standard LEGO bricks, making a pixelated kind of animal; Kenney has touring zoo exhibits with dozens of his creations, many of which are life-sized.Sachiko Akinaga's Sea Otter Mum & Pup.
