Welcome to Figurestock — a creative, specialist figure photolibrary for designers, editors and self-publishing authors.

Figurestock is a brand new, out-of-the-box collection of original and exclusive commercial images designed for book cover use. Combine our figures with your background photos to create the perfect book cover. The addition of a good figure can create drama, mystery, movement and excitement, or bring characters from a book to life.

We created this site to help you find your perfect hero, heroine, villain or victim.

About Left A completed image using a Figurestock stock figure photo

Either use the search box, or go to the galleries page to browse categories such as Gender, Silhouettes, Perspective, Profile, Genre; or, if you already have a character in mind, by Model.

If you already have a background image then Perspective, on the galleries page, is a good place to start your figure search. You just need to decide if the horizon is Low Level, Mid Level, Eye Level or Other.

Some of the figures are posed as if they are doing something: climbing or descending steps, resting their hands on a balustrade, jumping something, running or fighting. These figures are designed to go straight into a background image, or can be mixed with others.

We can make it easier for you to find that missing piece of the puzzle and create something truly special and unique. All of our images are carefully edited, model-released and available to licence. We'll be adding new images every month and the latest can be found HERE.

Thanks for looking.
