I have just cleared a beautiful 1920s photograph for use on a novel by Simone de Beauvoir, and indeed I have solved many a book cover search courtesy of Alamy, for both fiction and non-fiction titles. I have a good look at the website, which is very easy to use, and am constantly surprising myself with what I find there - not just photography but also art and design, and it is all the highest quality. The Alamy staff are friendly, prompt and ever-helpful and make the clearances process very straightforward.

I've always loved using Alamy - they have a wealth of incredible images that I can't find anywhere else, that I've used to create impactful, memorable, market-leading covers. They are a very dedicated and friendly library that I really enjoy working with, and have turned to them countless times for a winning solution!

The depth of the Alamy collection is astonishing. I produced a book of 52 global bike rides with 356 photos, including bizarre places behind the old Iron Curtain, and all were sourced from Alamy.
