Winter 2008 Roundup: Coffee-Table Books

David Schoonmaker, Catherine Clabby, Fenella Saunders, Morgan Ryan, Anna Lena Phillips, Flora Taylor

This selection of coffee-table books includes some of our recent favorites, with subjects including geology, cartography, the art of the formula, and animal architecture.
