Polaroids, Banksy, and Warhol...oh my! My favorite coffee table books.

Kyla Elise "red siren"
The list author says: "I put this list together of coffee table books that I adore. Some are a given...some are a little more out of the box. I am a visual gal and get thrilled over the littlest of things some times. A great polaroid. Mail art. Pop art. Fashion photography and classic photography. I hope you find something you can adore just as I did!"
The Polaroid Book (English, German and French Edition)
The Polaroid Book (English, German and French Edition)
"One of my favorite books ever but I do confess, I do love a good polaroid.  Polaroids by and from some famous faces like Warhol but some others that I didn't know at all.  I bought this book from Amazon for just 10 bucks. The best 10 bucks I've ever spent."

The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon
The Journey is the Destination: The Journals of Dan Eldon
"A very special book by a man who literally took my breath away- Dan Eldon. His death was a tragedy but what remains is his life recorded in journals (17 in all) The pages are filled with collages and photographs he took of his family and friends. He lived most of his life in beloved Kenya, a short time in New York. I cried while reading it and was inspired!"
The Griffin & Sabine Trilogy Boxed Set: Griffin & Sabine/Sabine's Notebook/The Golden Mean
The Griffin & Sabine Trilogy Boxed Set: Griffin & Sabine/Sabine's Notebook/The Golden Mean
"This series of books are my favorites of all time. I read these when I was younger. It is a love story mixed in with a bit of mystery. Two people, Griffin and Sabine, who write each other these letters and postcards. It's a visual treat; the art of Nick Bantock is nothing short of brilliant! THere is also something heavenly about opening letters and reading them."
The Secret Lives of Men and Women: A PostSecret Book
The Secret Lives of Men and Women: A PostSecret Book
"I love mail art and was a huge fan of the website before Frank Warren came out with the books. It is a perfect book for a voyeur. To know someone's little dirty secret but also there is some great visual art with these postcards. Some postcards will break your heart,some will make you cry and some will do both oddly enough."
Wall and Piece
Wall and Piece
"One of my favorite contemporary graffiti artists, Banksy. His graffiti art around London can be called interesting, whimsical, many times controversial, but whatever you call it- it's brilliant. This book in particular shows his sense of humor as well.  People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish... but that's only if it's done properly. —Banksy"

"Ellen Von Unwerth is one of my favorite fashion photographers. THis book is a bit naughty...reminds me of those old S&M black and white photos of the beautiful Bettie Bage. If you love gorgeous women from that time period, a bit classic and a bit mysterious, and if you like corsets and black masks, then this book is for you! I am a voyeur so this is divine."
Women Before 10 A.M.
Women Before 10 A.M.
"There is something kind of human and a little sexy about seeing a woman in bed, waking up. Of course these are mostly amazingly gorgeous women of our time, many famous faces with traces of sleeping lines on their faces, smudged makeup or no makeup at all. Some photograhps have a interesting element like Demi Moore and her mother.  Sean Penn had a great idea when he made this book."

"Kurt Cobain is a legend in his own right so when I discovered this book I was completely fascinated. Get into the mind of Kurt Cobain through his own words and his drawings-mostly before and during his rise to fame. After reading the book I understood what a creative genius he was but also a very fragile soul."
