OT: Coffee Table Books

Submitted by CRex on May 16th, 2011 at 1:47 PM

So my Google skills have failed me.  I'm looking for a nice coffee table book (maybe something in leather) that chronicles the history of the University of Michigan.  All my searches just pull up books of football photos, but I'm looking for something more along the lines of general history.  Can anyone suggest some titles or publishers who specialize in this kind of thing?  Thanks.

Edit:  Just to clarify, non-sports related books on the U of M.  This for an academic type that does not follow football.

Vault, yo, vault

The Michigan Vault is certainly a well put-together package of history, although the actual story itself leaves much to be desired.  The real star here are all of the little bells and whistles they throw in, like replica tickets and replicas of letters from Crisler, Bo, that sort of thing.  It may not necessarily be the most interesting read, but it's certainly fun to browse through.

It is called "The University of Michigan, A Photographic Saga," and was published in 2006 by The MilleniumProject at 2001 Duderstadt Center, Ann Arbor, MI 48109.  It was put together by Ann Duderstadt (wife of President Duderstadt), and is EXACTLY what you said you want.  I don't have a way to send you a picture of it, but I would think you could find it through the University.  Good Luck
