My Coffee Table Books

I did an inventory of my coffee table books. I am still not sure that they have all been unpacked. I gave a few of them away and sold a few to a secondhand book store, so maybe I’m just missing some of the books I sold. I am supposed to be downsizing but I’m finding that I don’t really like to part with my stuff. Here’s what I found so far:

Chic Simple – Home, Kim Johnson Gross and Jeff Stone, 1993
Vineyard Summer, Allison Shaw, 1994
The Secret Gardens of the Vieux Carre: The Historic French Quarter of New Orleans, Roy F Guste Jr., 1993, (I wonder how these gardens look in 2011 and if some were ruined by Katrina?)

American Design: The Desert Southwest, Nora Burba, Paula Panich, Terrence Moore, 1987
Martha’s Vineyard: Gardens and Houses, Taylor Lewis, Catherine Fallin and Elizabeth Talbot, (I own two Vineyard books by accident, but both are lovely.)

Sister Wendy’s 1000 Masterpieces: Sister Wendy Beckett’s Selection of the Greatest Paintings in Western Art, (I asked my sister for this book for Christmas. I did not realize it was out of print. Somehow she found me a copy but I think she paid much more for it than we usually spend on gifts. It is a beautiful book and I treasure it.), 1999
