For those who want to jump right in, The LEGO Book by Daniel Lipkowitz is the perfect place to start. It outlines the 50+ year history of LEGOs, from it's beginnings as the Kirk family business, to to the massive Legoland theme park. Find out how LEGOs have been designed and manufactured throughout the years. This book is full of dozens of LEGO kits that have been created over the years, as well as awesome LEGO brick art.
When you want to get started on your own LEGO building adventures, be sure to check out the LEGO Play Book : Ideas to Bring Your Bricks to Life and The LEGO Ideas Book : Unlock Your Imagination. These books contain hundreds of LEGO building instructions and inspiration so you can build your own dinosaurs, castles and cars. Or make your own unique creation!
For those who want to see extreme lego building, check out Beautiful LEGO for artists who push the medium of LEGO brick art. This is an ebook you can immediately and easily click or scroll through, while admiring complex models like castles, giant robots, and even convincing food creations.
For a more serious and heartfelt look, check out LEGO: A Love Story, a memoir about one man's reconsidered childhood dream of becoming a master LEGO model builder. This book takes an inside look at LEGO conventions, community, behind-the-scenes at LEGO headquarters, as well as a warm and personal story about the attempt to build with LEGO and build a family.
