Published by Isola Press in 2021, Ghost Signs: A London Story is the most comprehensive book ever written on the topic of these fading remnants of advertising past. I wrote the book over 12 months in collaboration with photographer Roy Reed, and then funded it with a Kickstarter campaign.
- Researching the 250+ featured signs, and wider contextual information.
- Writing the original text.
- Sourcing and licensing supporting contemporary and archival images.
- Raising over £30,000 via Kickstarter.
