Do people buy art books?

So I thought it would be a neat idea to compile some of my favorite images from my shop into a book.  I printed the book through Blurb, and got my first copy.  I like it, but am not sure if it can sell for enough for me to make a profit?  Just wondering if you guys think this is a smart investment or not?  I can by more and sell them through Etsy for less than my retail cost on Blurb.  Any opinions?  You can preview the first several pages on Blurb here.

I think it's a brilliant idea. It would make the perfect coffee table book and especially for the holidays coming up, a great gift. I say go for it!

Hi Emiko, i think your book looks gorgeous! I've been thinking about doing this too, and Blurb certainly makes it easy - are you happy with the quality of the printed page?

The images sell themselves. Go for it. :) Let me know what you think of the quality of the printed book. I printed a similar kind of book through Shutterfly and the quality was pretty good (although I am super picky), but I really didn't care for the high-gloss cover. I was hoping to find something with a matte finish.
