The latest edition of Bricks Culture has just been published.
Issue 3 of Bricks Culture, the LEGO pop-culture magazine for adults, is now on sale at republic66media.com
In our third edition we feature some of the most remarkable LEGO artists working in the world today. Both the incredible mosaic of a tree created by Amanda Feuk and the bizarre, hilarious creations of Karf Oohlu will inspire you with their novel use of pieces. We have more stunning creations from our Year 1 Guest Artists: James Pegrum was inspired by a visit to the National Portrait Gallery to create a vignette of Florence Nightingale for us, Chris McVeigh exclusively reveals the first holiday ornament design from his annual Build-it-Yourself project and Cole Blaq’s selections from his Enter the Brick series get decidedly edgier.
We have more reports from Billund in this issue. The Yellow Castle from 1978 is considered by many to be the greatest LEGO set of all time and so we tracked down its designer, the legendary Daniel Krentz. We also meet the people behind the LEGO Inside Tour which welcomes a handful of lucky members of the public into the LEGO Group’s most secret buildings.
As always, we also look beyond the plastic. Our cover features the Surma Bros: two brothers from Poland who create beautiful illustrations inspired by the LEGO catalogues of their youth. We give a LEGO Minecraft set to a printmaker who hasn’t played with the bricks since childhood, to see what he comes up with. A fan reveals that he was so frustrated by the LEGO Architecture Studio book, he wrote his own. A long-suffering wife tells us what it’s like to be married to a man who is married to the brick.
There’s so much more to discover within our 140 perfectly-bound pages. Cloud City, Chris Salt, Jason Freeny, David Alexander Smith, Mike Doyle, the history of embossed bricks… and find out the effect that the Stylophone had on giant Japanese robot minifigures from the future. Oh, and we love the new WALL-E set so much, we dumped it in a junkyard.
As seen on the documentary ‘The Secret World of LEGO’, Bricks Culture delivers a unique slice of the modern LEGO world to you each quarter with both style and substance. Issue 3 and back issues are now available exclusively from republic66media.com along with yearly and half-yearly subscriptions.
If that's not enough, as a special thank you to subscribers, two exclusive A6 art cards featuring the work of the Surma Bros will be included in this issue!
