Academic Rates and Scholarly Waivers

As part of our ongoing commitment to the art/art history academic community, all art/art history academic publications with a print run of under 1500 copies (including journals) or less than 200 downloads receive our ongoing support in the form of a waiver of reproduction fees.  Other non-art academic requests qualify for academic discounts, so be sure to include details on application.  The following uses are not eligible however: use of copyright artworks where the artist is living or has died within a 70 year period, use of an image on a front cover, print runs of over 1500 copies, reprints or subsequent edtions or where new photography has to be undertaken.
