CRIA, LLC (Commercial Research image Archives) has announced the launching of its web site, http://www.criaimages.com, offering quality historical and contemporary images at flat rates (from $5.00 to $35.00) on a royalty-free basis. Founded by well-known author and historian Jay Robert Nash, the company offers diverse inventory covering all types of persons, places, things and events throughout history.
CriaImages.com is the exclusive distributor of several large image collections, including the Jay Robert Nash Collection (more than 6 million images) and the Derek Fell Collection (more than 150,000).
