To date there are 6 Frank Zappa music score books available that I'm aware of.

These are
The Frank Zappa song book volume 1 (Awesome how it includes some of Franks musical score ideas before he even tidied it up. I'd love to see a whole book of that.)
The Frank Zappa Guitar book with a forward and transcribed by Steve Vai.
The Hot Rats book including tab.
One size fits all
Overnight sensation.

Please let me know if there are others and again this is about actual musical notation, not books about Frank Zappa written by numerous authors(of which I've got about 30 or so and growing. PS, if your new to Frank Zappa, then please read 'The Real Frank Zappa book, written by the great Frank Zappa himself as there's a lot of rubbish books out there and this will help you sift the diamonds from the loads of coal out there.)

My suggestion for the next must have music book, would be the full band score for 'The Grand Wazoo.'
A mammoth undertaking would be the complete original score for the lather album(original 8 sided album release idea)

Perhaps it could be done in small piece by piece installments. If that's the case how about:
RDNZL and The Ocean is the ultimate solution for starters???

These days there's always the digital method with PDF downloads that could be purchased directly from the Zappa site as well.

Food for thought and I hope it can be a possibility.
