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.

"This is something new, and quite delightful. A Scandal in Bohemia, the first of a series, contains Conan Doyle’s original text illustrated with full-colour photographs by P James Macaluso Jr. The photos, inspired by Paget’s illustrations and the Granada TV series, depict scenes created in Lego – charming and remarkably clever!" The Sherlock Holmes Society of London

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.

Risks and challenges
