Editorial Reviews

Review


"The scenes touch on the varying cultures, histories, traditions, and politics of each state . . . playful humor . . . Sometimes it's easy to forget just how distinctive our states are. These photos will make you want to go unearth that old LEGO set." —Huffington Post

"In his book United States of LEGO, photographer Jeff Friesen takes a comical yet artful look at the building blocks of America, one state at a time." —Reader's Digest

"An impressive collection of LEGO creations that 'capture' all fifty US states. . . . Look closely and you might spot some subtle touches." —Atlantic Cities

"Whimsical and smart, wittily captioned and rich in vibrant color and detail." —Resource Magazine

"Everything's better when it's done with LEGOs, especially Canadians making fun of Americans." —Wired

"There's nothing wrong with a little home-state pride. But it's important to maintain a sense of humor about the goofy qualities that make each of the fifty states special. Photographer Jeff Friesen pokes a bit of good-natured fun at each of the US states." —Mashable

Disappointed. I'm going over a state each week with my 6-year-old. He also loves Legos. Thought this was the perfect book to combine the two. But, it's not for children. The references to most of the pictures is for adults.

I did not know what to expect when I got this book. It was really clever and really fun. Friesen is very clever. The book is certainly not for children. At least not young children. The wry humor would be way above their heads. Very tongue in cheek and creative. For a Canadian he has a pretty good sense of Americans. Fun book. My Lego loving son liked it, although the humor was mostly above him.
