Ghostsigns: The Fading Remains of Advertising Past

16 Jan 2018

Cufos, Muswell Hill, London

Slogans and advertising campaigns of old can be found whispering from walls around the world. These painted signs are gradually fading but are far from gone. Researcher, writer and archivist Sam Roberts has been documenting them for the last 11 years, and leads two popular walking tours in London focused on these ‘ghost’ signs. In this richly illustrated talk he will share some of his work, his fascination for the signs, and what the future may hold for them.

Hosted by North London Lettering Association. Free to NLLA and SLLA members, £4.00 non-members (membership details here).
