The Beautiful LEGO series of books is back with a new installment looking at animals and critters completely made from colorful bricks.

From wild animals to household pets, Beautiful LEGO: Wild! focuses on the artists behind the creations.

Interviews with LEGO masters give readers an exclusive look into the minds behind the art. For featured builder Sean Kenney, creating art with LEGO is more than just connecting pieces—it’s capturing the essence of a subject: “It has to have life. My sculptures need to be rooted in personal expression.” One of Kenney’s pieces, Monarch, is made from more than 60,000 LEGO pieces.

Tom Poulsom, whose amazing bird sculptures became an official LEGO set this year, explains the appeal of working in such an unusual medium. “To me, LEGO is the best puzzle in the world. There are infinite combinations, and it’s possible to create pretty much anything your mind can imagine.”
