A Book By Its Cover

When the old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover” came to be, books weren’t necessarily doing double duty, styling cocktail tables and bookshelves just so. In fact, a few carefully chosen book covers can lend your room a pop of color or another subtle layer, and, as we’ve noticed, serve as a conversation starter during your next cocktail party.

Our Room & Board photo department has a very enviable collection of eye-catching books.

Room & Board Art Director Nancy Stancati shared a few of her favorites and let us dig around the Room & Board library. Here are some of our favorite books–because of their covers.
