New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (12)

New year, new books! I'm excited to present to you another classic film book round-up. There are so many new releases that I had to be a tad more selective this time. I didn't include some of the higher priced scholarly books and kept mostly to trade and books that I thought you all would be interested in. If you think I overlooked an important title, let me know and I'm happy to add it in!

Are you new to my list? Here are the details. Links lead to Goodreads or buy pages where you can order or pre-order the title. Books include biographies, memoirs, scholary texts, coffee table books and more from a variety of publishers. Publication dates range from January to July and these are subject to change. Using my buy links helps support this site. Thank you!

If you want to hear me chatting about classic film books (and why wouldn't you?) I was a special guest on two episodes of The Movie Palace Podcast including one recorded with the host Carl Sweeney, Classic Film Books episode, and one recorded with Carl and my good friend Vanessa, Gift Ideas episode.

Now on to the books...
