Over the last three years, James Macaluso has re-imagined the 12 adventures of Sherlock Holmes using LEGO figures. Released as individual colour books, The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined feature every original Sidney Paget illustration replaced with scenes carefully recreated with LEGO figures and photographed in colour.
A lifelong Holmes fan, James created the series as a way to make the original stories more engaging for young readers.
Each of the original adventures to get the LEGO treatment, from Scandal In Bohemia released in 2014 through to Copper Beeches out this June, have proved a hit with Sherlock Holmes fans and societies around the world.
"The illustrations by P James Macaluso Jr are eccentric, clever, beautifully presented, witty, and bang up to date, being full-colour photographs of creations in Lego, each a scene depicted by Sidney Paget in The Strand Magazine. Ideal presents for the young Holmesian in your life." Sherlock Holmes Society of London
James has been providing plans of some of his models on his website so fans can recreate some of the larger models.
This project brings all 12 stories together in a special, 336 page paperback and hardcover collectors edition. Each book contains over 100 full cover scenes created in LEGO.
