We’ve seen a lot of fantastic models created using the LEGO bricks we grew up experimenting with. Rather than going huge like these cool LEGO creations, renowned photographer and LEGO enthusiast Jeff Friesen decided to focus on something much smaller—micro cities. The focus of his new, appropriately titled, book, LEGO Micro Cities, is just that, intricate recreations of classic architectural styles and features using only the tiny LEGO bricks your parents used to swear at you under their breath for leaving all around the house. At 200 pages and with 80 builds, this hardcover has you covered when it comes to creating your own otherworldly utopia brick by brick.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
