I assume that tomes of secrets start to drop in inferno mode; but do the other two types of tomes continue to drop?

No - Tomes of Secrets are the only Tome drops in Inferno. You'll need to use the Auction House or go back to Hell to get Tomes of Blacksmithing and Jewelcrafting.

So there is no crossover at all? (like the rares/magic items you get in Nightmare might still be crafted into Normal ingredients). – deutschZuid May 24 '12 at 1:42
None for tome drops - where crafting materials are concerned, occasionally Act IV items salvage into materials for the next higher difficulty, while Act I items sometimes salvage into materials from the previous difficulty. It seems to be tied more to required level than where the item came from. – Ashel May 24 '12 at 2:16
