Lebrecht October 2008 Newsletter

Lebrecht is known for the two key subjects of Music & Arts and Author Pictures. The volume of images online is increasing very quickly – we now have 80,000 images available in high res on our website at and Do remember that we provide context and background images for these specialist areas – historical personalities, events and places at the time our artists were creating their great works – from antiquity through to the 21st century.

New images include outstanding author, artist and music pictures from Neil Libbert, one of the best known photographers in the UK.

American literature is also an area that is expanding very fast. Its heroes and authors are immensely influential in our culture. We hold author pictures, book covers, book illustrations, manuscripts and family and contextual background.
