- Toulouse-Lautrec: Scenes of the Night
by Claire Freches, Jose Freches, and Alexandra Campbell (Translator)
A popular 1994 book originally published in French. One Amazon.com reader says, "I prefer the smaller size of this book (compared to 'coffee table' editions). Even though it is a practical size, the reprinted art is vivid and does not suffer from the smaller pages. Also this book is really informative (not a lot of meaningless art jargon and expert opinions)."
- Moulin Rouge, Roman um Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
by Pierre La Mure
Published in 1950 by Random House, this biography "is told in a narrative style, and focuses on T-L's many failed romances as much as on his art. This refreshing approach more than makes up for whatever liberties La Mure takes in conjuring dialogue, first person thoughts, and conversations recounted in the book that the author wasn't privvy too and I'm sure were not recorded." —Lautrec.info visitor Jeff Koenig
- Moulin Rouge: The Splendid Illustrated Book That Charts the Journey of Baz Luhrmann's Motion Picture
by Miro Bilbrough, Baz Luhrmann, and Sue Adler
One Amazon.com reader raves, "This book is a must-have for any fan of this genius film. The book is from Baz Luhrmann's company, so it carries through the breathtaking visual themes of the film, and it's just gorgeous. It has sections on the history of the Moulin Rouge, the story of the film, all aspects of the making, and portfolios of beautiful set photos from noted photographers. This is up there with 'James Cameron's Titanic' as an invaluable visual document of the film."
- Explosive Acts: Toulouse-Lautrec, Oscar Wilde, Felix Feneon, and the Art & Anarchy of the Fin De Siecle
by David Sweetman
A very interesting biography of several artists, but mostly Toulouse-Lautrec. It is unique in that it puts him in a category with political anarchists of the time.
- Toulouse-Lautrec: A Life
by Julia Bloch Frey
The definitive (and exhaustive!) biography of Toulouse-Lautrec. Very few current books on the subject fail to cite it as a source.
by Bernard Denvir
Originally published in 1991, this 216-page paperback is a "reader-friendly book of straightforward text and well-chosen illustrations," according to one Amazon.com reader.

A fictional story about the founding of the Moulin Rouge. One Amazon.com reader argues, "It may well be the best filmization of that oft-filmed musical hall story."
- La Zone (1928)
You'll never find a copy of this documentary about ragpickers living in the
dirtiest slums of Paris. But it is notable for featuring an appearance by a
toothless, ragged woman doing a little can can in front of her run-down
home. It is La Goulue herself, just one year before she died.
