Cover This facsimile of Sara Barcus's original sketchbook depicts events from the first year of the war following the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, illustrating both the heroism and resilience of Ukrainians and the senseless destruction and trauma of Russia's brutal invasion. Sara began posting her sketches on social media and soon gained a massive following, including soldiers and families serving on the front lines of the fighting, many of whom reached out to her with their personal stories of horror and sacrifice.
