Autumn is just the best, isn’t it? The beautiful oranges and reds of the trees, the brisk mornings, and pumpkin spice everything…it’s all so perfect! Check out these five coffee table books that truly put fall on display!
1. Colorado Autumn by John Fielder
Fielder condenses his twenty year history as a Colorado photographer into 73 beautiful images that take you right into the heart of the mountains. He also includes directions to some less-traveled locations and proper timing to catch the peak color change times in each part of the state.
2. The Colors of Fall: A Celebration of New England’s Foliage Season by Jerry and Marcy Monkman
Filled with nearly a hundred images, the Monkmans share their best images from their years photographing in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Additionally, they include maps with their chosen routes to find the best views.
3. Under October Skies: Autumn in Acadia by Michael Hudson
Hudson shares ten years of photography in Acadia National Park in this stunner; each October for a decade, Hudson traveled throughout the park, capturing miles of beautiful autumn scenery. Amidst the pictures are his own personal accounts of the joys and trials of photographing in a national park.
4. Vermont: A Focus on Fall by Ken Paulsen
With over 200 photos of Vermont’s glorious autumn scenery, Paulsen’s book belongs front and center on your coffee table. He divides the book by geographic locations/scenes (bridges, waterfalls, mountains, etc). He also includes directions to the locations in the event that you’d like to enjoy Vermont’s autumn in person.
5. Autumn Colors of Kyoto: A Seasonal Portfolio by Hidehiko Mizuno, Kayu Mizuno, Yasutaka Ogawa, and Kodansha International
These talented photographers capture fall beauty at many spiritual and historic sites in Kyoto, Japan. The juxtaposition of man-made structures and nature’s bright colors draw the eye; the author also includes translated information about each site.
If you’re one of the many who loves the autumn (and I know you must be), take advantage of the beauty that these books offer you, and perhaps take a mental escape into the mountains for a while.
