A Journey to Middle-earth

needed to use the images (for which we thank her kindness!) (Note:
9/29/2005 permission was given for the old site. Ask if linking allowed
to new). Due to the
problem, going through Rolozo's page for individual pictures may be
better. A Journey to

John Howe's comments (from his FAQ) on web sites
using his images:
sole UK dealer: ADC Books
To put it in a nutshell, there are four
conditions for use of any of my
imagery on a web site (not including of course photos by other persons;
in that case their permission must be requested).
1. That the use be strictly non-commercial.
2. That the work be properly credited.
3. That a clear link to www.john-howe.com
Last but not least, that the use of the image be in accordance with the
image itself. This is perhaps hard to make clear, but I would refuse,
for example, use of one of my pictures to promote ideas, concepts or
undertakings with which I disagree, or for which the image's prime
purpose is only to attract attention to something entirely different.
