Thanks for including my list! What was your favorites book(s) from the year? I had a really hard time choosing between “Let’s See” and the “Colour” anthology.
Thanks for the great list, Marion. I don’t have a list of my own of favorite books from the current year, as I tend to buy older books as much as new ones and don’t pay that much attention to what’s current. That’s why I pointed to your list and the others.
Thanks for this Charlie – very useful
I’m like you, my book buys are frequently not recent publications but it’s always good to see what gets rated – and to look to see if there’s anything I’ve missed.
I’m surprised that the recent “Artists Inspired By H.P Lovecraft” art book published by Centipede Press isn’t being mentioned anywhere. I know it’s expensive, but still.. http://www.amazon.com/Lovecraft-Retrospective-Artists-Inspired-H-P/dp/1933618345
Other readers can find Katherine Tyrrell’s book (and other ) recommendations, plus lots of art and art resources on her blog Making a Mark.
Other readers can check out tons of monstrously cool art and stuff on Aeron’s Monster Brains blog.
