Blog love - letters of note

In an attempt to give this blog some love, I'm going to start sharing some of the cool archive related blogs that I've got bookmarked each week.

This week its Letters of Note, a lovely blog that provides images of original letters along with their transcripts for those letters that the editor Shaun Usher believes deserves a wider audience.  More information about the blog and the idea behind it is available here and here.

So if you're an archivist with a letter, telegram, note or postcard that you'd like to share get in touch as the site welcomes submissions.

Interesting article from the Guardian here about the History of Advertising Trust's project to create a Ghostsign Archive.  This aims to collect image to create "a permanent photographic record of advertising painted directly onto brickwork within the UK."

There seems to have already been in existence a Ghostsigns project that set up a Flickr group called ghostsigns to collect images.  This group has nearly 4,000 images at the moment and 415 members which is pretty impressive.

More information about the whole thing is available from their blog and on their website.

Its got me thinking about the ghostsigns I pass every day.
