Permission for Reproduction
To copy or reproduce any copyrighted material you must first have permission in writing from the author, even if you own the original piece of art. There is usually a fee involved which is based upon the nature of the reproduction. For example a one-time use of a pen & ink illustration in a small magazine or newsletter might cost $100 while a painting used for a trade market book cover might cost $500 or more to use for the life of the book. Occasionally permission may be granted free to not-for-profit or educational organizations and worthy causes. There is usually also a nominal media charge--the cost of a transparency duplicate or digital media such as a CD, depending upon your needs.
You may request permission for any of the images in these galleries by e-mail, letter, fax or by telephone.
