LEGO toys have sparked creativity and joy for generations, and now fans can explore the birth and early life of LEGO Space in LEGO Space: 1978-1992, written by Tim Johnson, published by Dark Horse Books and set to arrive in shops in October.
Perfect for LEGO fans of all ages, this oversized hardcover volume explores the latter half of the 20th century through the lens of LEGO Space – illuminating the brand’s own history alongside the popular culture and world events that helped to shape it.
This over size hardcover collection includes statistics and trivia for each set from across nearly two decades, fascinating insights of the LEGO Group as a company, and celebrations of the talented designers who helped to create each incredible model and their bricks, elements, and accessories.
As a child, Tim Johnson’s favourite LEGO sets were Classic Space… and Shell petrol stations. He is old enough to remember being thrilled by the introduction of the 1×3 brick. After leaving his Dark Age in 2011 he became frustrated by the lack of discussion about new LEGO elements online, and founded the LEGO news site, New Elementary in 2013.
He was also the Editor of Bricks Culture magazine for its two-year run and has written and built for DK Publishing’s range of LEGO books.
“LEGO Space sets have been firing my imagination since I was eight years old, and I’m so excited to work with Dark Horse and The LEGO Group to bring this beautiful book to fans,” says Tim, when asked about what LEGO Classic Space fans can expect from it.
