Why coffee table books can play an important role in the digital age?
With the advent of the digital age, many paper-based books and magazines are gradually transforming to digital. Is there no other way for all printed books to transform? No, in any case, there is at least one type of printed books that cannot be replaced by e-books and readers, and that is those books that accompany you on the coffee table.
Although magazines and book publishing have transformed from printed books to digital publishing, there is a book publishing market segment that is still dominated by book printing, and that is the "coffee table book" market.
Coffee table books are usually big tomes, and they are pictorial books with pictures on specific themes. According to an article in "Marketing Business", this kind of books is growing in the publishing industry. While other publications are going digital, paper coffee table books are regarded as holiday gifts and home decorations.
"A really well-made coffee table book is like a work of art. Through the use of color and color repetition and other details, it can be coordinated with and integrated with the entire room, and it makes the room very different." New York Interior Design Dean Ellen Fisher said in "Marketing Operations."
