GHOST SIGNS - A LONDON STORY
Ghost signs are fascinating pieces of urban archaeology. Imposing yet hidden in plain sight, these faded advertisements reveal fascinating stories of everyday life in the capital; each sign has its own story to tell.
This book showcases around 250 of London’s most impressive and historically significant ghost signs, geo-located, accompanied by archival and other contextual images. Introductory chapters include essays on how the signs were produced and their restoration and conservation.
The book will appeal to flâneurs, armchair historians and those interested in design, architecture and typography.
