What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a way for individuals to support an idea that they believe in, helping to turn that idea into a reality and receive special rewards in return. In our case, the rewards almost always include books!

How do supporter names work?

Every person who pre-orders the LEGO book gets their name included in a supporter section inside the book as a thank you. If you want to add a different name, this can be changed in your account after you have completed your pre-order. Click here here for more information on how to change your chosen name.

When will I get my book?

Delivery of the books will be in Spring 2022. The book hasn’t been written yet, but we’ll keep you updated on its progress along the way.

Will I be able to buy this book in shops?

The book and associated rewards are exclusively available through Unbound, they will not be available to buy in shops. Once the supporter list has closed we will know how many copies we are printing and these will be the only copies of this book in the world. The book only gets made if the crowdfunding target is reached, so choose your reward quickly to avoid missing out.
