Default Coffee Table Books (Automotive & Others)

Hi Bhp'ians,
In a lot of posts our fellow bhp'ians have mentioned about 'Coffee Table Books' they collect, but I could not find a thread dedicated to it. So I am starting this thread. There are various categories of books both Automotive and Others.

Automotive for e.g.: classics cars, sports and super cars, Muscle Cars, Cars driven by Maharaja's, Based on Famous Brands, Famous Models, F1 etc etc.

Others: Art, Food, County, Cities etc. etc.

Request all to post their collection, wish list etc. and pictures of at-least the cover page so as to not break any copyrights issues. I have recently started collecting automotive related books and will post the details soon.

Mods: If a similar thread already exists or you do not find this thread useful please take necessary action.

I bought this book sometime back and its a worth every rupee that it costed. It covers history of 4x4 and how it has evolved to the current state. Also has sections on which car/suv uses what kind of 4x4. Here is the link

Apollo - India - Promotions

I am contemplating publishing some sections from the book here, would it lead to copyright violation? Any comments?

I would love to own this one: Pagani, the Story of a Dream - Books It's the First Coffee Table Book by Pagani. This basic edition cost EUR 79, but There is an edition which costs EUR 189 that has been personally signed The Man: Horacio Pagani himself and is limited to 800 copies. Would love to get hold of one of these.

I agree with you mayank! The book is totally worth it. Good information in there. I would not advice you to publish sections as it would lead to copyright violation, unless obviously you have got the permission to post them here!

What other books do you have?
