The History of Photography in Pen & Ink (abridged study guide) by Charles Woodard was made in 2009 by A-Jump Books (They are also responsible for the design). The book is perfect bound and limited to 500 copies. The cover is printed one color red on a gray stock and the interior is black and white on an off white paper. Drawings are printed on the right and their titles are on the left. It can be used as a study guide (Which is what I think these drawing’s original purpose was) or can just be enjoyed (less pressure). The size of the book is small and nice (almost like notecards).

FLIP! by Marieke Verbiesen is a book containing two flip book stories (turn it over when you are done with one). It is full color and thick. There is not very much information about the book printed anywhere (the author is stated along with “Stenciled by Knust” on one of the inside front covers) but it looks like they are hopefully available in a few spots. I got mine at a comic book shop. This website might also have some available.

The book includes drawings that Mills made, that were used in his new film Beginners as works that were made by the main character Oliver. The drawings included are personal to Mills, he explains a bit in the introduction, and he presents them in a creative and beautiful way. The drawings usually include a text explaining a bit about their origins or just describing what they are. The book is black and white except for yellow covers and endpapers. It was published by Damiani in March of 2011.
