Some wonderfully picturesque coffee table books are “Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs,” “Atlas of the World, Twenty-first Edition” by Oxford University Press and National Geographic’s “Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips.” All of these books are available for sale on Amazon.com, as of 2015.
Coffee table books should be over-sized and hard-covered. Look for those that contain more art work than text. Coffee table books are meant to be seen, not read. There are highly rated coffee table books covering tattoos, shoe collections, magazine covers and renaissance sculptors. No matter one’s tastes, a good coffee table book exploring a particular fondness has probably been published.
