Ghost Signs

We're big fans of those old hand-painted adverts on the sides of buildings. I love the craft and skill that went into making them, and the charm that the lettering has compared to modern, cookie-cutter typography. I found these images over on Ghost Signs, a blog dedicated to recording and creating an archive of these pieces.

'Bile Beans' isn't the most appealing product name eh.

Ha no, you've got your work cut out from the moment you call your product that I suppose.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the plug, I'm always staggered by how much people love the old signs.

TV

Radio

I'm now working to establish the official UK archive alongside HAT.

Cheers,
Sam
