I'm a big fan of the 40k artwork in some of the source books, what books would you recommend to satisfy an art-o-phile such as myself?

The RPG books vary in art quality. Some is beautiful. Some is merely passable. Your best bet is to lurk /tg/ and obtain images ripped from their digital releases. Such as this.
