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.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined — The Complete Collection

Új kép

This collected volume reprints all twelve short stories comprising The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined book series in one paperback edition. Between its covers the original tales by Conan Doyle have been amusingly illustrated using only LEGO® brand minifigures and bricks. The illustrations recreate, through custom designed Lego models, the composition of the black and white drawings by Sidney Paget that accompanied the original publication of these adventures appearing in The Strand Magazine from July 1891 to June 1892. Paget’s iconic illustrations are largely responsible for the popular image of Sherlock Holmes, including his deerstalker cap and Inverness cape, details never mentioned in the writings of Conan Doyle.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – Re-Imagined — The Complete Collection is available from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
