The Painted Ad
Twenty-two years on from publishing the definitive Ghostsigns book, William Stage is back. ‘The Painted Ad: A Postcard Book of Vintage Brick Wall Signs’ builds on his own professional work in the postcard industry.
He has pooled 25 of his best Ghostsigns images to create a book of cards which can be used to send or kept as a single unit for posterity. A more detailed review can be found here (my copy is on order) and it is available from Amazon. For details of William’s other book and further Ghostsigns reading visit the Reading List.
Also, see the video below which features a brief interview with William stage:
