Does anyone know if there is a really great coffee table type book that focus's on pianos? If not maybe we should collectively put one together. What a great resource of a wide variety of pianos.
But then, would it sell?

I know there was a Bosendorfer coffee table sized book, but I can't seem to find any available copies. If anyone knows a source please let me know.

'Piano' by David Crombie and 'The Piano' by Jeremy Siepmann would both qualify as coffee table books...they're big and shiny, but with the added bonus of being informative!

The two I'm familiar with are:

Saxguy, the book comes with your piano. It is also available on the Bösendorfer website, $100, but it takes a long time to receive it through the mail.
A very nice book is "Piano" by David Crombie. ISBN 0-87930-372-7
Also very good is "88 Keys" The Making of a Steinway Piano by Miles Chapin & Rodica Prato ISBN 0-517-70356-4

The Piano 300 book would be an excellent choice.
