We took this image at the Printer's Row Book Fair about 5 years ago because we loved the look of vintage letterpress blocks clustered together. Being total bibliophiles, seeing this display at the book fair almost made us teary-eyed.
When we spied Crate and Barrel's Alpha Coffee Table, $899.00, we were instantly intrigued but upon further examination were left feeling underwhelmed. We want to love it...but can't quite get there.
The Alpha Coffee Table is carved from a single piece of wood and finished off with a crackle finish, the table top sits upon a powdercoated steel base. What do you think?
