It depends on what your you are after.. the majority of card books have some flourishes in them. THe royal road has two small chapters.

It really depends on what you want to do.
Jeff McBrides, ART OF CARD MANIPULATION VIDEOS 1,2,3 . http://www.llpub.com

Brad Burts Card Flourish Videos are available at most magic shops or online. http://www.magicshop.com

Jeff McBrides videos are good for standup, stage, some close-up.

Brad Burts videos are good for close-up.

Now I know you want books, but these are great videos if you haven't got them already!

brian tudor's showoff series would be a good start. Lee Asher's videos have nice false cuts. Buck Twins stuff, Cap Casino, Bill Malone's OTL series, Greg Wilson's Card Stunts... you could learn flourishy stuff from these videos.
