New books

There are plenty of new books in stock since February when I last did the update.  In photography there are a range of titles, including several new anthologies in the 'Documents of contemporary arts' series, a new book from Reaktion looking at photography and China, and titles by Pieter Hugo, Andreas Gursky, Tom Hunter and Wolfgang Tillmans.  There is also this beautiful book from Japan:

[Burning chrome by
Norihisa Hosaka]

In film and television  we continue to build on our holdings of books relating to international film, with books relating to Latin America, India, Algeria, Southeast Asia, and South Korea; and we also have the fourth edition of the 'Film genre reader' - we have included the full table of contents in the catalogue record with this edition.

(Both these pictures are taken from my twitter feed.  If you would like occassional tweets about new books and other stuff please follow me.)
