30 Day Book Challenge – #30 Favourite Coffee Table Book

So I’ve reached the end of my 30 day book challenge and what better way to end than a book that every book-lover MUST own! ‘Books’ by Martyn Lyons is a beautiful hardback book, which recounts the history of the book from the very beginning. As well as being an incredibly interesting read, the book is also crammed full of glossy photographs of original manuscripts, illustrations and artefacts, which have come to form books as we know them today. This book makes a fantastic ‘coffee table book’, as the lovely images will draw people in and they cannot help but pick up an interesting fact or two as they flick through the pages!

Now I am at the end of my challenge, I have listed the criteria below for anyone else who would like to give it a go. I have also linked the pages to my previous posts in case anyone has missed any or needs some inspiration for tackling the challenge themselves!
