New & Free • Ghost Signs of Glasgow 2
Out now, and free to download, volume 2 of my Glasgow Ghost Signs books - over 100 beautiful ghost and shop sign in one ebook. Volume 1 is also still available.
The back lanes of Glasgow and the refurbishment of high street shops continues to reveal interesting and frequently beautiful old signs in all areas of Glasgow. In addition to hand-painted ghost signs, I’ve included some modern shop signs, interesting, amusing or nicely designed examples of local shop art.
Many of the ghost signs here are fairly legible, often the result of being covered and protected by new signs, some however are very faded and fragmented with only a few letters recognisable, even these have a certain impressionist beauty to and I’ve included one on the last page.
Glasgow Graving Docks
I’ve been photographing the Govan Graving Docks in Glasgow for a few years and love the derelict beauty of this abandoned place which once teemed with industry.
The Finishing Touch: decorative features of Glasgow architecture
Glasgow has a rich architectural heritage and many important buildings are finished with sculpture, stained glass, tiles and other decoration. Sometimes unnoticed are modest buildings which also feature attractive finishing touches, additions to commercial premises which weren’t really necessary but they showed a pride in the business or building.
