" think the idea might be for the artists to share their books. By putting it in their studio for visitors to sit down and read while waiting, or at an artsy cafe where you live. Hence the phrase "Coffee Table Book".At least that's what I would do. I think it would be a fun and professional way to promote yourself and the Etsy community. " executeme
