New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (18)

New year, new books! Let's kick off the new year (albeit a little late) with some 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. For any scholarly books I make sure the ones included are affordable. There are also some reissues added to the bunch. Publication dates range from January to June 2022 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.
