Now on Kickstarter – A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet

Now on Kickstarter – A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet

The Sherlock Holmes Alphabet brings iconic scenes from the Sherlock Holmes canon to life using Lego figures in high resolution images.

Five years ago, James Macaluso began building scenes from Sherlock Holmes stories in LEGO® figures. This became a series of books covering twelve of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes titled “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined”. Each book featured many high resolution features as well as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original text for the stories.

They went down a storm with both fans and critics.

James was asked to create more Sherlock Holmes scenes in LEGO® and the idea for the Sherlock Holmes Alphabet was born.

“A is for Agra, the immense treasure found. B is for Baskerville, accursed by the hound.”

Thus begins A SHERLOCK HOLMES ALPHABET, in which selected characters and objects featuring in the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle are presented in rhyming verse, from A to Z, and accompanied by amusing photographic illustrations of custom designed LEGO® models and mini-figures.

This uniquely illustrated edition is sure to delight LEGO® enthusiasts, as well as fans of the Great Detective, children and adults alike.

In addition to pre-publication copies of A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet, we are also offering copies of the Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined books and also copies of the complete collection.
