Official war artist and Turner Prize winner Steve McQueen, in collaboration with 155 families whose loved ones have lost their lives in Iraq, has created a cabinet containing a series of facsimile postage sheets, each one dedicated to a deceased soldier. The Art Fund, the UK's leading art charity, presented this cabinet to the Imperial War Museum in November 2007 and is currently touring the work around the UK. But until real stamps are issued the work is incomplete.
The Art Fund is spearheading the campaign to gain public support for Steve's vision for Royal Mail to officially issue the stamps.

According to an opinion survey The Art Fund ran in March 2008, 69 per cent of the British public said they are in support of Royal Mail issuing the stamps, and in another survey 92 per cent of the armed forces said they're also in support.
