Books & Literature

Similar to all other scopes at Bear Family here is another wide range of material in this category. Books and literature fitting to the music. You'll find illustrated books, picture books, coffee-table books, music novels, biographies, chart listings, and of course professional literature with the subjects music and cultural history.

“All the little money that ever came into my hands was ever laid out in books.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon.”
Bertolt Brecht

Many music lovers lie to know more about their favorite music or artist. Despite Bear Family's great booklets and books, we definitely experience the limitations of space! To cater to your need, our experts choose from the vast amount of biographies and documentaries to give the best books around. We stock what fits our program: books about music, movies, trends and period graphics.
