The Arcangel creative stock photography collection contains many period costume shoots,
but we also offer a full archive of genuine vintage photography!
We focus on vintage photography that’s suitable for fiction covers and other commercial projects.
Many of the images come from private family collections, giving them an intimate and personal feel.
More recently, and in response to design trends, we’ve received a wealth of material from the 60s and 70s!
There has been a trend for using faded colour tones, film grain and soft textures to evoke an idyllic past or suggest childhood memories.
Newly uploaded material includes summer travel, garden parties and special occasions – perfect imagery for fiction with roots in the past.
