Looking for any help I can get in my search for a Coffee Table Book for my brother-in-law for Christmas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
has a one (that I am sure you can find other places too). The University Of Michigan Football Vault. I page through a little of it every time I go there.
You might need a stronger coffee table though.
I've thumbed through a friend's Penn State version of the very same "VAULT" series. Not alot of heavy reading, but a pretty good history of the program, high end printing w/ full color photograhy through the whole book, and the best part-- tons of these peculiar little easter eggs, like replicas of JoePa's hiring letter, programs of team banquets from 1956, even replicas of tickets from the '82 national title game sitting in little envelopes glued into the book itself.
I've never seen the Michigan one in person, but wouldn't mind it under my tree (in case Mrs. Six Zero is reading, ha).
-- I enjoyed the "What It Means to Be A Wolverine" book, featuring essays on the title from some of the biggest names, like Kramer, Morris, Dierdorf, etc... And Brandstatter's "Tales from Michigan Stadium" books are kind of nice little 3-4 page stories that usually revolve around Bo calling somebody "full o' happy horseshit" or an "ornery son of a bitch."
If you live in michigan then these are always in stock at your local borders or walden books.
hope that helps
Here is a good one. It has Mike Hart on the cover!
I got this a couple years ago. Comes with a multimedia CD. Cool pictures but the text is really, really uninteresting.
Thanks everyone. Now i just need to see how much shipping is to get it by Christmas.
Barnes and Noble offers free three business day shipping on orders over $25. Also, FWIW, if frequent flyer or lodger points matter, most airlines and hotels will give you extra points if you click through from the airline site.
