 “It would be no exaggeration to say that the stunning documentary and reportage photography … incorporating Antman’s unique ‘take’ on our PLR world, revolutionised our published output and had an immediate impact in promoting the PLR Scheme in all the right areas. Our publications received plaudits across the sectors in which we operate and it was great for us … to be seen to be punching above our weight by virtue of the impact of Antman’s unique photographic style.”

Dr. Jim Parker, O.B.E., Registrar, PLR

Public Lending Right (PLR) is the legal right that authors have to receive a payment when their books are borrowed from public libraries. It is administered by the government-funded PLR office, an essential part of whose work is publicising PLR so that (a) authors learn of PLR’s existence and know to apply; and (b) government decision makers get the message about the importance of PLR payments for authors’ livelihoods and creativity.
