akg-images announces a new website and an exciting collaboration with Osprey Publishing

akg-images’ Managing Director David Price-Hughes says, “2014 is an important year for akg-images. Not only is our London office celebrating its twenty-year anniversary, but we have just launched a brand-new searchable website, completely redesigned to help clients find images faster and better than ever before, incorporated many of their suggestions our clients have made into the new site.

akg-images are also announcing a new partnership with Osprey Publishing, part of the Osprey Group. David Price-Hughes again:

“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, head of Osprey Publishing 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.”
