Illustration Guidelines

The attached guidelines will help you navigate our art submission process. Whether your art program is large and complex or simple, following these instructions will help ensure the timely publication of your book and maximize the quality of the art reproduced, in both print and digital form. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your acquiring editor. 

Please keep in mind that art should not be included simply to make a work appear more attractive. Illustrations should play a supportive role, reinforcing editorial points in the text or helping to further the reader’s understanding of issues you discuss. Please be judicious in selecting illustrations. In addition, please be aware that permissions restrictions for art can complicate our ability to sell digital/electronic editions of your work or to reach overseas markets. Many books, of course, will and should contain only text.
