Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger has produced a limited edition print, Thumb Print, to support fundraising for The Line. The artist’s own thumbprint is framed within the shape of a credit card, that other guarantee of identity. The action of a thumbs up is captured in this work. The lines are reminiscent of the contours of a map, reflecting the unique journey that visitors to The Line experience.

If you would like to purchase one of these prints (£500 +VAT +postage) please email The Line. All proceeds go directly to The Line.
