    @TREG

    I'm pretty old so the books I list will be dated for most. If you are looking for a classical type pastry there are a couple of fairly good ones.

    Michel & Albert Roux have a pretty good series.

    Roland Bileux & Alain Escoffier also have a good series.

    I can personally recommend  any books by Yves Thuries and Gaston Lenotre. 

    I can look in my library tonight for others.

    one of the best books you might find (expensive though) is...

    the advanced pastry chef by bo friberg

    they sell it on amazon.

    Bo Friberg is an excellent choice. I have "The Professional Pastry Chef", which i believe is similar.

    The book i have been hooked on lately is Patisserie  by William and Suzue Curley.
