We’ve kinda reached sat­u­ra­tion point with both “wacky spins on Lego” and “books about steam­punk”… but com­bin­ing the two is new!

Across eleven care­fully dis­tressed chap­ters, this showcases the weird and won­der­ful cre­ations of the Lego steam­punk com­mu­nity.

Yes, there’s a Lego steam­punk com­mu­nity.

Our favourite sec­tion: “Space!”, which fea­tures steam- pow­ered ver­sions of some fa­mil­iar craft, in­clud­ing a, er, ” Bow- Tie Fighter”.

Other chap­ters fea­ture fear­somelook­ing rail­ships, war ma­chines and “monowheels” which might re­mind you of Gen­eral Griev­ous’s Wheel Bike.

The level of in­ven­tion is pretty im­pres­sive, el­e­vat­ing plas­tic brick assem­bly to an art­form.
