Frequently Asked Questions

Inspection copies for educational institutions
We do send inspection copies of relevant paperback titles to qualifying tutors at UK schools and universities. To qualify, please email the book details plus your name; the name, department and full postal address of your institution; course name; students numbers to j.walton@thameshudson.co.uk. Provided completed feedback forms are received for the books, they can then be retained free of charge.
Tutors in the USA and Canada should contact W.W.Norton & Co for further details.



Contacting authors
If you need to contact an author of one of our books, please mail or fax us a letter addressed to the author and we will gladly forward it for you if we have the author's current address on file. Please include your postal address (and phone or fax number if you wish) so that the author can contact you directly (not all our authors have e-mail!). We will do our best to forward all letters quickly, but it is up to the author to reply to you.

Requesting picture permissions
In general, we do not hold the copyright to individual images that appear in our books. We hold the copyright to the book, but the individual images are usually owned by the artist, photographer, etc. who created them. You must contact the copyright holder directly.
You can find this information in the book in the photo credits or picture acknowledgments. If, after extensive research, you are unable to find a source noted in one of our books, please write to:
Picture Permissions
Thames & Hudson Ltd
181a High Holborn
London WC1V 7QX.

E: permissions@thameshudson.co.uk
F: +44 20 7845 5050

Because of the number of enquiries we receive, please understand that it may take some time before we are able to respond; we are not a picture library! Please include in your enquiry the book title, page number, title of work, a photo credit if possible, and your intended use.
