What is your coffee table wearing right now?
I wouldn't be surprised if it was entirely obscured by one of these huge tomes that self-respecting fashion houses habitually put out now. Of course, some of them stretch the very definition of a book - and not in a good way.
Are you ready for the Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture? Released last month, this book records Vuitton's major collaborations with 80 artists and architects; It at least serves some sort of encyclopediac purpose. And doubles as art (or a doorstop), with a limited edition Damier-patterned plexiglass slipcase designed by Takashi Murakami.
