BLAXPLOITATION CINEMA The Essential Reference Guide
By Josiah Howard. Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide will become the primary reference book on the genre, covering not just the films' heyday (1971-1976) but the entire decade (1970-1980). From Aaron Loves Angela to The Zebra Killer, they're all here in one indispensable volume. Complimenting the text of Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide are many of the vivid, highly-theatrical, motion picture posters and ads that promoted the films. Blaxploitation's rich and colourful poster art has been the sole subject of a number of coffee-table books. The hand-painted, elaborately illustrated posters and ad campaigns associated with the genre represent a now-gone golden era of sensational motion picture representation. Also features page after page of stunning action stills and original newspaper admats. FAB Press, 2021....More

By Gary Reed, art by Charles Yates. A graphic novel that looks at the Western Front during World War One. From award winning writer Gary Reed and comic book illustrator Charles Yates, a look at the anguish and horrors French soldiers faced on the European battle field as they squared off against an advancing Imperial German Army. Fought like no war before it, the European superpowers saw this "Great War" as an opportunity for quick glory and territorial gain. Instead they soon found themselves engaged in a new form of trench warfare that dragged on for four bloody years and saw millions of soldiers needlessly killed on both sides.

THE BLAZING WORLD Illuminated Edition
By Margaret Cavendish. Art by Rebekka Dunlap. The Blazing World is one of the most fascinating, unusual and astonishing pieces of literature in the English language.

The tale involves spirit possession, astral projection, the many-worlds theory, and an inter-dimensional otherworldly queer romance that is centuries ahead of its time. Featuring numerous full-page and spot illustrations, and housed in an elaborately die-cut and embossed slipcase, this is an heirloom edition designed to be a work of art in its own right.

THE ART OF PULP FICTION An Illustrated History of Vintage Paperbacks
Highly Recommended. Introduction by Richard A. Lupoff. The Art of Pulp Fiction: An Illustrated History of Vintage Paperbacks chronicles the history of pocket-sized paper bound books designed for mass-market consumption, specifically concentrating on the period from 1940 to 1970. These three decades saw paperbacks eclipse cheap pulp magazines and expensive cloth bound books as the most popular delivery vehicle for escapist fiction. To catch the eyes of potential buyers they were adorned with covers that were invariably vibrant, frequently garish, and occasionally lurid. Today the early paperbacks--like the earlier pulps, inexpensively produced and considered disposable by casual readers--are treasured collector's items. IDW, 2021. Due: Sep. ...More

MELVILE A Graphic Novel Hurt
A multiple-award winning graphic novel from Belgium. Highly Recommended. By Romain Renard. A beautifully painted, ethereal story with a head-spinning twist. Samuel Beauclair's life has hit the skids.

Tate Britain is the home of British art from 1500 to the present day. This guide to the collection provides an essential introduction to the extraordinary development of British art over the centuries: from van Dyke, Hogarth and Reynolds, to Sargent, Burne-Jones and Waterhouse, to the modernists Stanley Spencer, Paul Nash and Francis Bacon. About half the book covers our area of interest, paintings up to 1900 or so; the latter half features abstract, cubist and modern art, which I admit I personally have little feel for.
