New books since Christmas

It's about time I posted about new books that have come into the library, so here we go.

The photography books in so far this year include some really exciting titles.

I have been looking forward to Fifty key writers on photography for a long time, and I am pleased to see there are contributions from David Bate and David Campany. I'm disappointed, however, at the quality of the paper - you can see through to the page behind - and there is something about this, with the font (Bembo), the colour of the paper, and the typesetting that makes it difficult to read. Hopefully, they will release an e-version soon, which this sort of book is well-suited to.

There are a wide range of new film titles too; and these two titles for animation.
