Collection of the AP staff’s best images to be available this week

The Associated Press, the world’s leading source for news and information, will publish this week a photographic record of the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The commemorative volume, containing the best of AP’s images capturing the ceremony and the pageantry in London , will be compiled and edited by the AP’s photo staff and published by its AP Images commercial photo division through MyPublisher.com, a leading Internet supplier of photography-focused printed products.

“A team of 21 Associated Press photographers was in position to capture the royal wedding from start to finish,” said AP Director of Photography Santiago Lyon. “Within minutes of each key moment, hundreds of AP photos were transmitted to thousands of newspapers, magazines, websites and media outlets around the world, using state of the art digital technology. When it comes to coverage of major media events, AP is unsurpassed for quality photography and speed of delivery.”

“It’s an honor to be partnering with a recognized world leader in photography, the Associated Press. People will cherish these photo books for decades to come,” said Carl Navarre, CEO of MyPublisher.
