Gnomes are a staple of many fantasy worlds, but their portrayal varies widely between settings. Some players have a soft spot for them, while others treat them with contempt.

This list attempts to catalogue sourcebooks about gnomes or gnome culture, including ones where gnomes are one of a handful of races portrayed.

The recently-released Pathfinder RPG gnome sourcebook, which is mostly player-orientated but has plenty of useful information for GMs too. It accentuates the fey nature of gnomes in the Golarion setting.

Part of the AD&D 2nd Edition line of player supplements including background information as well as new 'kits', spells and equipment. Symptomatic of the mistreatment of gnomes, they only get half a book, rather than the full book that dwarves and elves received in the same product line.

Top Ballista features the Sky Gnomes of Serraine, whose tinkering has led to the creation of a range of aircraft in this (slightly less than serious) supplement for Basic Dungeons & Dragons set in Mystara.

This Creature Crucible includes a range of other airborne races as well, nearly all of which include rules for use as Player Characters.

I'm a little hesitant to add this, but this game does provide another take on the idea of gnomes...as murderous, tiny stalkers in the night. It's a strange looking books but does point at how a generic idea like "gnome" can get translate differently depending on the game. For example we have gnome-like beings in Changeling: The Dreaming.
