Coffee table books are a fun way to show off your style and unique interests, and they can also serve as great conversation starters when you’ve got guests hanging out in your living room. In my world, there are no rules for these types of books. You can purchase one and display it simply because you like the cover. It doesn’t even have to be in a language you can read.

When it comes to coffee table books, there’s really only one law: it should be fun to look at.

I love to find unique books that I don’t see everywhere else, and some of my best finds have been at secondhand bookstores and from used booksellers on Amazon. Scroll down to discover ten of my current favorites — all of which have both beautiful covers and great content inside. Doesn’t get much better than that.
