Whether you opt to add just a couple to your already-heaving bookshelf or pile several of them up to double as a coffee table, a colourful or attention-grabbing coffee table book is as ornamental as anything else in your home, so it pays to pay attention to them.

Behold, here we’ve picked out 11 stunning coffee table books that would make the perfect finishing touch to your décor set-up and are simply too pretty not to own. From food and travel to fashion and flowers, these eye-catching books are crying out to be added to your basket.

    Italian painter Sandro Botticelli is recognised as one of the greatest artists of all time, most famed for his work Birth of Venus. But although you could probably spot this iconic painting a mile off, much about him and his life is unknown and lost in the past.

    Botticelli Reimagined explores how his work has lasted lifetimes, what makes him a pop icon and why we’re still obsessed with this painting in particular.
