A curated set of coffee table books makes a great statement. Art books can bring a drab coffee table to life, double as accent furniture when properly stacked, and entertain those restless guests of yours. Coffee Table Book of the Week is our weekly selection of stylish books to spruce up your home. – FM

Photographed by Allan Tannenbaum and prefaced by Yoko Ono, this is a humongous and impeccably edited collection of photographs documenting 70s New York. There’s something for everyone in here, ranging from art to politics and everything in between. You’ll yearn for the life you missed out on (unless you lived through it all, then SCREW YOU!), but at least you can now experience it all secondhand.

New York in the 70s

From Amazon: “The photographs encompass many aspects of New York life while capturing the heady exuberance of the era-from SoHo and the art world to the city’s politics and society. By photographing everything from street gangs to disco divas, from homeless to Hollywood stars, Tannenbaum had assembled a personal diary of his journey as a photojournalist and raconteur through a strange and exotic era of New York life.”
