Postage Stamp Collage - This iconic image created from over 3000 postage stamps commemorates one hundred years since the start of World War 1. The recruitment poster of Lord Kitchener was first designed by Alfred Leete in 1914 and has been greatly used in advertising ever since. Because of the double standards implicit within the propaganda machine in World War 1 the artist has duplicated the pointing finger of Kitchener's hand meaning you and you and you. The poppies transform through to petals, then tears and then into the blood of the many who gave their lives.
