Infinity Publishing, a pioneer in Indie Publishing, has teamed up with National Geographic Creative to bring a new level of imagery to the process of creating truly unique and compelling cover designs for its authors and emerging new writers. Through Infinity, these emerging talents will be able to license National Geographic Creative’s collection of 11.5 million images at preferred rates.
The new program was kicked off and it marks the beginning of a new series of collaborations and partnerships that will support Infinity authors in their publishing journey. Infinity Publishing and National Geographic Creative will work together to assist authors in their search for the perfect photograph for the cover of their book.
“By including a National Geographic Creative photograph on an author’s cover it conveys a certain originality and professionalism that is often difficult to find,” said Arthur Gutch, Chairman, Infinity Publishers Group.
The National Geographic Program is now being rolled out to Infinity authors who publish with Infinity or those that are seeking a publishing partner. Each author will be given the opportunity to search the National Geographic Creative’s photography online collection directly or to work with a sales representative to find the photograph that fits their criteria.
“National Geographic has one of the world’s richest archives of still and moving imagery, featuring the award-winning work of some of the world’s foremost photographers,” said Alice Keating, Vice President, Image and Video Sales for National Geographic Creative. “This new program will offer Infinity’s authors a simple way access some of the most exciting and unique photographs, and create a compelling backdrop for their editorial projects.”
Infinity Publishing revolutionized the category of self-publishing by providing “author-originated book publishing” services for authors. Infinity has worked with more than 5,000 authors who have collectively published more than 8,000 titles with the company.
