About Us

Hello, we're akg-images! We've been helping creative people illustrate their ideas for nearly seventy years.

Looking for an art print for your wall?

We have a selection of our finest images available as high-quality art prints and posters through the leading art publishers King & McGaw.

Please note: Unfortunately we are unable to supply images directly to private individuals for personal use.


Can we help you find the perfect image?

You can search our collection for yourself online, or contact us for free searches and let our imaginative and knowledgeable staff help you find the perfect pictures. Our researchers have access to unscanned material, as well as additional images from our network of partner collections around the globe. If you have questions about licensing and fees, our sales executives are on hand to discuss the options with you.
