Coffee Table Books: Some Favorites from 2010
The end of the year can be a time for reflection—or just for browsing the year’s best large-format science books
This slide show offers images from some of our favorite coffee-table books of the past year. Their subjects span cartography, botany, art-science, the space race and more. And we couldn’t resist including a new field guide and a dictionary of sorts, whose quirkiness and innovation make up for their relatively small sizes.
