Marketplace Challenge:

Book publishers need images for their books. There is an extreme competition of stock photo agencies because of micro-stock. High-quality suppliers, such as Getty Images, suffer under this situation. Publishers need to be reminded of the fact that only high-quality images raise the level of a good book, and that a text always gains something with the right image.
