    Might be considered a good source of ideas too, although not a book, is the 2012 Calendar which is available for pre-order from both Amazon and The Book Depository now. I found a highres version of the cover which has a really nice build (MOC?) on it.

    The cover also mentions a “contest” for a chance to have your builds placed in the 2013 calendar. I’m sure some of the MOCs you’ve featured here on your site well make great additions to it.
