New & Upcoming Classic Film Books (17)

I'm back with another doozy of a list! There are so many great titles especially from some of my favorite publishers like University Press of Kentucky and TCM/Running Press. And lots of reissues of previously out of print books. This is probably my favorite list so far that I've compiled!

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 August to December 2021 and these are subject to change. (The publishing industry is feeling the effects of the current shipping crisis so think of on sale dates as moving targets!).

Links go to Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Powell's (and Larry Edmunds Bookshop if available there). I receive a small commission if you shop through some (not all) of my buy links.
