Some of our favorite coffee-table books from 2011 are the stars of this slide show
It's always hard to choose which books to feature in our yearly roundup of coffee-table books. This year fine photography features heavily—from black-and-white photographs of physics research equipment to a guide to making pinhole cameras. If these titles don't satisfy your need for science in pictures, check out the titles available at your local bookshop. Many more books worthy of leisurely perusal have come out this year.
