The Cost of War

I had the idea for this peice of work this morning. I woke up thinking about the War In Iraq as being a product of consumerism.

So i decided to list the British Iraq war dead as in a shopping list.

I call this 'The Cost of War'.

It would look better if formated properly, but as I dont know how to do that so you will have to just imagine it formated as a shopping list.

The list of the dead are in chronological order.
