How LEGO Bricks Have Sex

derek beaulieu edited a chapbook anthology years ago (Lego 50-15, Calgary: No Press, 2008), in which a number of writers celebrated LEGO.

For my contribution, I snuck back to the source: the original LEGO patent application. Stealing a image schematic from the forms, I reworked it as a page pulled from a fictional encyclopedia, as if some sort of biology textbook from an alien world.

This approach was inspired by the Codex Seraphinianus, my favourite book of all time.
