Ah, coffee table books. Even though you’re essentially the grown person’s picture book, we still buy and covet you almost as much as we do other books in our collection. Much like memes or party-rappers, though, your desire to become more popular pushed yourself into some outrageous territories, and now it’s hard to tell when you’re a serious book or something made-up. Try it for yourself: can you guess which of these coffee table books were pushed to print and which ones were pure whimsy?
