5 Wisconsin Coffee Table Books

February 19, 2018

It was surprisingly difficult to create this list! I wanted to find Wisconsin-based books that truly captured this state and could be a good addition to your coffee table. I’ll continue to add and update this list as I come across them but for now, here are five Wisconsin coffee table books that you might enjoy checking out!

Wisconsin Lighthouses

“No symbol is more synonymous with Wisconsin’s rich maritime traditions than the lighthouse. These historic beacons conjure myriad notions of a bygone era: romance, loneliness, and dependability; dedicated keepers manning the lights; eerie tales of haunted structures and ghosts of past keepers.”


This Superior Place

“Picturesque little Bayfield on Lake Superior is Wisconsin’s smallest city by population but one of its most popular visitor destinations. This book captures those unique qualities that keep tourists coming back year after year and offers a historically reliable look at the community as it is today and how it came to be.”


One Small Farm: Photographs of a Wisconsin Way of Life

“In One Small Farm, Craig Schreiner’s evocative color photographs capture one family as they maintain the rhythms and routines of small farm life near Pine Bluff, Wisconsin.


Capture Door County

“Door County Visitor Bureau is proud to present Capture Door County: Fine-Art Photography of Door County, Wisconsin. Photographers submitted their photos to the Capture Door County website, then people voted for their favorite images. Editors picked the best of the best from top-voted photos for selection on the pages of this book!”


Wisconsin Reflections

“Nature photographer, Darryl Beers, and Hiaku artist, Raymond Reed Hardy, have teamed up to produce a very special tribute to their native state of Wisconsin. The striking photos are illuminated by the simplistic beauty of fine Haiku verse. Wisconsin Reflections showcases Wisconsin’s natural beauty of its waterways-ponds, waterfalls, rivers, and lakes.”
