New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (15)

This new list is long overdue. After what seems like a month of research, I finally gathered up some notable classic film book releases. A few of these I have already dived into myself and many more have found a new home on my wish list.

Are you new to my list? Here are the details. The books include biographies, memoirs, scholarly texts, coffee table books and more from a variety of publishers. Publication dates range from September 2020 to December 2020 and these are subject to change.

Links go to Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Powell's. When you use my buy links to purchase and order a title you’re interested in you help support this site. Thank you!

Happy reading!
