Dream Team

Dream Team

It's somewhat hard to believe that it's been a full 20 years since we saw the likes of Jordan, Magic, Bird, and company storm the Olympic stage and mercilessly beat teams like Angola (116-48), Lithuania (127-76), and Cuba (technically during the Tournament of the Americas, but holy shit, 136-57!). Dream Team: How Michael, Magic, Larry, Charles, and the Greatest Team of All Time Conquered the World and Changed the Game of Basketball Forever ($18) takes a look at this legendary team from its inception to the gold medal ceremony, offering up behind-the-scenes stories as only someone who actually lived with the team could.

  • The Burning House

    It's amazing how a simple question — "If your house was burning, what would you take with you?" — can reveal so much about a person. Based on the blog of the same name, The Burning House ($11) is a study in materialism as seen through the items held most dear, told in brief interviews and photos — some of which have appeared on the website, and some unique tales. Revealing, slightly morbid, and utterly captivating, it's prime coffee table reading.

  • A Book of Beards

    Straggly or sleek, full-bodied or selectively styled, there are tons of beard varieties in the world — and you'll find gorgeous portraits of 86 of them in A Book of Beards ($45). Spawned from idea to photograph local beards in West Chester, PA, this gorgeous coffee table tome also features beards both local and exotic, 18 written contributions, and 125 pages. The proceeds will go to help Mike, the brother of author/photographer Justin Muir, and other cancer patients and survivors, so you'll have a fine answer should someone ask why you have a book full of bearded men in your living room.
