I do not do instruments but I have friends that do. My question is do you
pay copyright for the use of the photos?

Daryl;

I don't know if my original response to your posting got through. I wanted
to know if the Book was going to pay copyright for the use of the Photos
that you are requesting. As I mentioned before, my friend makes music
instruments in clay. He might be interested in participating.
