The LEGO brick was patented in 1958, but the story began much earlier in the carpentry workshop of Ole Kirk Christiansen (1891-1958) in Billund, Denmark, where he made wooden toys rather than plastic bricks. This illustrated history of what is now the market-leading, award-winning LEGO Group also describes the ever-expanding range of LEGO toys. It surveys the catalogue of products from simple bricks to Duplo, Technic and Mindstorms sets, video games and even sculptors 'building outside the box'.
