Signs of the Times by Geoff Hocking (historical Australian Advertising signs)

cover photo

Signs of the Times recalls the magnificence of historical Australian advertising signs, posters and marketing ephemera, with more than 300 photographs of classic images from across Australia. Comprising photographs sourced from historical archives as well as from author Geoff Hocking's own extensive collection, this unique array of advertisements ranges from faded painted walls, beer labels with long-forgotten designs and enamelled metal signs, to a kaleidoscope of tins and collectables.

Author and artist Geoff Hocking has been a collector of ephemera, old signs and photographs for more than thirty years. His own collection began when he souvenired his first metal sign, a Mobil flying red horse, at the age of sixteen.
