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.

Thanks for the write up, the whole project was a hobby that became and obsession which lewd to the creation of the archive. You're absolutely right, once you spot, you can't stop!
