New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (16)

I'm way overdue for another new book round-up. Better late than never! Get ready for a wave of new classic film books!

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 January to July 2021 and these are subject to change.

Links go to Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Powell's. I receive a small commission if you shop through some (not all) of my buy links. With that said if you're going to buy from any of these links, make sure you click through to Larry Edmunds Bookshop and support that fantastic book store!
