Hello fellow Queenfans. I am looking for a new good Queen book to buy. The last one i bought was the amazing 40 years of Queen which i'm sure every fan has. But which other books are worth buying. Some titles which interests me are Queen unseen, Queen, off camera, off guard, and the new illustrated Queen lyrics book which is pretty too. So maybe other people here can tell me which book is money well spent.

I read Queen Unseen by Hince and it's a great book. I suggest it! The best book about Freddie is the one written by Peter Freestone.

I loved Queen Unseen. Peter Hince has some hilarious anecdotes. I couldn't put the book down.

I strongly recommend Queen: The Ultimate Illustrated History of Crown Kings of Rock (I'm reading it now), and of course Queen Unseen by Peter Hince, the 40th's Anniversary book you mentioned, Queen on camera off guard, and this rare one.

Just received my Illustrated Lyrics book today and have to say that it is one gorgeous book and definitely worth the cost (which is pretty inexpensive for such a nice book). I was not too impressed with On Camera, Off Guard. If someone hadn't given it to me as a gift, I wouldn't have bought it. Hope this helps.
