3 Coffee Table Books We’re Coveting

LUNAR LANDSCAPES

British artist Darren Almond has photographed a series of more than 260 landscapes using only the light of a full moon to illuminate each one. The result is a collection of hauntingly beautiful imagery that has been compiled into an inspiring new coffee table book.

BEAUTY AND THE BOOK

In celebration of 80 successful years, Lancôme has prepared a series of events, limited edition launches, a surrealist short film and exclusive coffee table book entitled La Vie est Belle. The book, authored by Stéphane Guibourgé, uses a mix of photography and stories to tell the tale of Lancôme: the history, the artist collaborations that have been the brand’s cornerstone, and its dedication to bringing beauty to women around the globe.

La Vie est Belle, published by Editions du Regard, available at select bookstores worldwide, and a copy of the book can be found at select Lancôme counters.

HEART OF GLASS

Over the past decade, Dustin Yellin has caught the eye of the art world with his complex sculptures made from intricately layered pieces of coloured glass. This new hardcover tome is the first comprehensive survey of his work to date.
