Chicago Ghostsigns mapped online and photographed for thesis
This website [Link expired] allows you to browse locations in Chicago and find the neighbourhood ghostsigns there. It was created by Nicole Donohoe for her thesis and has some great examples from this city which I haven’t previously seen many signs from. I’m not sure if the project is still active but there is a submissions process similar to that for the HAT archive. See some other examples and experiments with mapping here.
