I'm currently on the hunt for entertaining display worthy coffee table books. I have recently discovered interesting reads that would definitely keep the guests occupied. These usually non-fiction hardcovers inspire conversations under various subject matters related to Art, Photography, Interiors, Food, Travel, or whatever interests you and your guest (s). When selecting the displayed literature at home, it should ideally relate to your interest. It normally defines the owner's personality and taste. Here are some of my recent finds:
