Lego Shortlists


If you're a regular visitor to Shortlist (and if you're not, behave) you'll be aware of our deep love for Lego.

We've had Lego Mad Men, Oscar Lego Posters, Lego Album Covers; we never tire of the little blocks of fun.

So, naturally, we decided that if anything should get the Lego treatment, it should be our own magazine covers, and to celebrate our 200th issue we did just that.

Adam Cadwell is an astonishingly talented artist (responsible for the fantastic Vimto advert amongst other things) who dabbles in Lego landscapes and he kindly recreated seven of our most iconic covers using only real Lego.

Quite tempted to go with the Lego versions every week now...
