“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” might be good advice, but let’s face it: when it comes to home décor, the look of an art book is just as important as what’s in it. In fact, displaying your interests in your home is crucial to self-expression, and even for those with floor-to-ceiling walls of bookshelves, the addition of a few coffee-table books can work wonders.
