akg Images are a company which sources and licenses photographs and illustrations for editorial and non-editorial clients alike. With offices in Berlin, London and Paris, their researchers have access to three million scanned fine art and historical images, including a wealth of stunning black and white photography, as well as an impressive archive of offline material. They have just launched a new website, and a rather exciting collaboration with Osprey...
Our artwork is a source of great personal and professional pride here at Osprey. We are delighted to announce that, as of now, akg images can provide an extensive back catalogue of images from our books from over the years, and will continue to do so for all new releases in the future.
David Hughes-Price, managing director at akg images, had this to say:
“We’ve long been fans of Osprey Publishing’s military history titles and we’re proud to announce a new partnership with Osprey which makes many of the glorious illustrations inside their books available for licensing to our clients worldwide. We’ll be regularly adding new images from their roster of talented artists to our database and have started with a selection of ancient and medieval scenes chosen by our colleagues over at Osprey. The images, complete with the engaging and detailed caption information Osprey enthusiasts have come to expect, are available online now.”
Richard Sullivan, our own managing director, commented:
“The breadth and excellence of Osprey's collection thousands of pieces of historical and military artwork is something that we are immensely proud of. Over the last 45 years we have had the opportunity to work with some fantastic artists and are extremely pleased that this valuable resource is being made available globally through this partnership with akg-images. The potential for ongoing co-operation and rapidly expanding the range and subject matter of the art they are holding on our behalf is phenomenal and we look forward to working with them for years to come.”
