Creator of the bestselling The Brick Bible series, master LEGO storyteller Brendan Powell Smith makes history come alive with a fresh new telling of the most fascinating details of our past. Following 2013’s Assassination!, Smith’s new Revolution! takes readers on a wild ride through events that shaped the world and shows how two revolutions inspired by the highest of ideals—liberty and fair representation—went in such profoundly different directions. While the struggles of the American Revolution forged a nation that became a beacon of hope and democracy to the world, the upheavals of the French Revolution plunged that nation into a nightmare of ghastly terrors that collapsed into despotism. For the first time in LEGO, see the infamous Boston Tea Party, the battles of Lexington and Concord, George Washington’s daring crossing of the Delaware, Paul Revere’s midnight ride, the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, and more. Across the pond, discover the reign of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, the storming of the Bastille, the Women’s March on Versailles, the Reign of Terror, the guillotining of royalty and traitors alike, and the ultimate rise of Napoleon.

With over four hundred highly detailed illustrations, Smith captures the spirit of these American and French revolutionaries, demonstrating the compelling power of this unlikely creative medium. Whether a historian or a LEGO enthusiast, readers of all ages will surely be enthralled with Brendan Powell Smith’s latest brick creation in The Brick Chronicle series. It’s history made fun!

While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
