29 Gorgeous Art and Fashion Coffee Table Books

Every now and again there's a pay-off in betting against the old adage, “Never judge a book by its cover.” Sought-after cover art designs evoke style, wit, intelligence—and sell like hotcakes. Luxe literature in oversized editions and rare, out-of-print gems are the crown jewels to many a stylish vignette or coffee table conversation piece. These artful tomes with their lush, vibrant hues, and poetic graphics, are equally impactful as stand-alone works of art as they are a good read.
