Welcome to Paperback Model
Daniel here, I’m the photographer and owner Paperback Model.
PbM specialises in providing images suitable for book covers. Our website, features a closed selection of expertly retouched images of over 100 models in portfolios ranging from 5-100 images per set.
To access our high-resolution watermarked images, you need to sign up as a member, which is free. Each author must have their own login details as sharing is prohibited. Our terms and conditions have more information on site usage.
Purchasing a single image from a portfolio will make the rest of the images in that portfolio unavailable to other authors, ensuring exclusivity and avoiding duplicate book covers. Our pricing ranges from £260-£1800.
If the colour of an image doesn’t match your series but you love the shot, we offer colour matching services to make it look more like yours.
Imagery is negotiated with the model and/or model agency ahead of purchase and therefore finalising a license can take up to 24 hours. In some cases you may need to provide a brief blurb of the book to ensure the model approves for the content of the book.
Each model profile has a link to enquire about purchasing or for downloading high-resolution sample imagery.
