We love LEGO and apparently we aren’t alone. AFOL (adult fans of LEGO) are on the rise and we reckon there will be a few more after people see Warren Elsmore’s new book ‘Brick City: LEGO for Grown Ups’ where he painstakingly creates international landmarks and shows you step by step guides of how to do the same. London gets a good look in with impressively accurate recreations of the Olympic Stadium, St Pancras Station, Westminster Abbey, Battersea Power Station (flying pig included) and Nelson’s Column. If you want to see some of these masterpieces up close, a selection will be on display at Waterstone’s Piccadilly from Tuesday May 7 until June 4. 

Here’s a few sneak previews to get the AFOLs’ pulses racing…
