Painted Ad Site

The Painted Ad Site from William Stage

Wm Stage is back and this time he is taking his work online with the launch of his new Painted Ad website/blog.

For those unfamiliar with Stage’s work then you should read a bit about his latest book, and also know that he authored the single most comprehensive volume about hand painted wall advertising back in 1989. All in all he is a founding father of the current vogue for Ghostsigns and his site already delivers some fascinating new content, including the work of watercolour artist Dana Forrester* and a beautifully illustrated sign said to date from 1895.

More is yet to come so keep an eye on this new blog and make sure you get a hold of the latest book from this Stateside Ghostsigns legend.

*Dana’s website available here.
