"Queen and Country" visits Liverpool

An exhibition of the Art Fund's "Queen and Country" project is visiting Liverpool (from 18th September until October 31st). The project is the work of war artist Steve McQueen who has produced facsimile postage stamps showing the portraits of soldiers killed in Iraq. In conjunction with the soldiers' families The Art Fund is seeking to get the Government and Royal Mail to release a set of official postage stamps based on these images to commemorate those who died for their Queen and Country.
A petition has been set up by the Art Fund which has already attracted 13,000 signatures so visit their website and add your name to the petition!
