Further information

To enable us to promote your products effectively, we are endeavouring to include as many book jackets on our website as possible.

Part of this process means we physically scan over 1000 books a week to upload on to our website on top of any illustrations publishers submit to the Book Guide or Gardners Recommends.

It is possible we can download your image files to our system via the Internet. Also if you already have images for your titles which we can use in other formats please contact us by emailing illustrations@gardners.com to discuss alternatives in file handling.
