These people have taken their love for literature and LEGO to the next level with incredible tributes to classic novels. From a recreation of Hogwarts so detailed it may have induced a few tears, to a majestic diorama of George R. R. Martin’s Red Wedding, this LEGO art will leave you speechless.
We’d love to see more literary LEGO – share away in the comments!
1. The Battle for Helm’s Deep
You thought that LEGO fortress you built as a kid was impressive? This recreation of the Battle for Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings will make you reevaluate your whole childhood. Comprised of (approximately, we presume) 150,000 pieces, it was created by Flickr user goelkim2011 and you can see it in all its wondrous detail here.
This sandworm emerging from the sand before a trio of fremen majestically recreates Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic Dune. You can see more of RebelRock’s Dune creations here.
3. Hogwarts Castle
4. The Red Wedding from A Song of Ice and Fire
EuroBricks forum user PaddyBricksplitter paid tribute to John Wyndham’s classic tale of plants gone wild with this amazing bit of LEGO art.
6. The Dark Tower
Stephen King’s magnum opus the Dark Tower series deserves LEGO art of equal stature. We think David Collins’ piece does the trick.
There’s a lot of amazing tributes to Sir Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series out there, but this recreation of the Great A’Tuin by Flickr user Bertrand Fa has to be our favourite. See more of his Discworld work here.
