Of making many books

I would like to read books by more MeFi writers. I have therefore made a list of who they are and their books. [more inside]

It was (I think) a coffee table book.

I'm looking for something I think I first saw in the blue. It was (I think) a coffee table book. The book had lots of pictures of found situations and described the situations as an anthropologist might describe observing humans. The one picture that sticks out in my mind is a bicycle leaned against a sign described as something like "We use objects in our environment to keep others from falling down." I think it was supposed to be about design or usability.

Do you remember the book about coincidences?

I saw something in the blue, sometime in the last 6 months, which was maybe a book about "real" coincidences and at some point it stated the frequency with which they occur. I've googled and googled to no avail. Anyone remember this? One of them had to do with 9/11, I think, and one of them had to do with a guy in a motel room getting a phone call on misdial but it was actually intended for him or something and maybe saved someone's life?

Illustrated architecture book post

Quite some time ago there was a FPP about a book, written in either Italian or Latin, that was heavily illustrated with fanstatic architecture that often had an erotic element. I've done several searches of the archives, but have come up blank. Does anyone else remember the post, or am I imagining it? Thanks

Could I post this as an FPP?

I've been sent a preview of a new chapter in a forthcoming book by a friend / colleague / comrade. [more inside]

That was nice of you, but... (don't post my stuff to mefi)

Er-
I certainly appreciate the thought, and the enthusiasm, but when the time comes I'll buy a text ad like anyone else. I don't think of Metafilter as my personal billboard.
Matt, please kill the thread, or move it back here to "metafilter-related", as that's about as close to relevant to this site as my book is.
