Can anyone recommend any books on scrapbooking?? I downloaded a few but they are very 'old' style scrapping.

I have to second the signature series linked by the previous poster. I have the Kelly Purkey and Elizabeth Kartchner ones and keep going back to them over and over for inspiration. They are inspiration books, not technique books, but full of great layouts and projects. They are fairly small (maybe 8X8) magazine/books, meaning the pages are glossy, and the weight of magazine paper. They are on sale often at craftysteals, and you can get older ones for quite a discount through Northridge itself. I like them so much, I ordered the Amy Tan and Heidi Swapp ones as well. If you're not familiar with all the designers featured in the line of books, I would recommend you google them and check out their blogs to see if their work is something you would like (there were a few I wasn't interested in, based on their blogs). All the projects in the 2 books I have are very current, with lots of products from recent releases.

If you are looking for technique books, Canadian Scrapbooker has a great series of magazine/books on techniques called Canadian Scrapbooker Basics. I have 2 or 3 of these and used them a lot when I was more into techniques. They are the size of a full magazine, and quite thick, heavy pages, etc. They have a book about the basics of scrapbooking, beyond basics, a few on stamping, one of embellishments, etc. I'm pretty sure you can order them outside of Canada.

What exactly do you mean by "old school"?

They go on sale about once a month ( whichever one is current is the one on sale along with other northridge publications) at craftystealsdotcom. Usually they are under $10 there
