EMBO Journal (2012) published a special focus issue on Wnt signaling, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the field. It contains six reviews of various areas of Wnt signaling. 

 

Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology (2012)  has published a series of reviews on Wnt signaling and  a book on the field.
