Ukraine: Remember Also Me

By George Butler

A collection of vivid and powerful testimonies from the conflict in Ukraine, collated and illustrated by award-winning artist George Butler.

While reporting on the war in Ukraine, George Butler has created striking and intimate illustrations to introduce us to the people behind the headlines. His drawings, made in a variety of places, from people and animals in underground shelters in the Kharkiv metro, to hospitals and bombed out streets and homes, vividly capture stories of family, tragedy and perseverance. These powerful portraits of war and conflict are a timely reminder of the humanity we all share and our universal need for peace. A stunning, illuminating and sensitive look at stories that deserve to be told, with a foreword by journalist and military historian Max Hastings.

Reviews

'George Butler reports from the frontline of humanity producing images of astonishing power. They stay in the mind for a long time. Humane, compassionate and deeply thought-provoking.' Stephen Fry

'Reportage of aching beauty – Butler’s gentle engagement draws out stories of profound sadness, but also courage and strength.' Lyse Doucet

'George is a truly remarkable person - there is so much courage, curiosity and empathy behind these precise, sometimes playful, unexpected images of humans in extremity. He always makes me think.' Rory Stewart

'Reportage illustration at its finest.' Ian Hislop

'George Butler is in the front rank of chroniclers of our troubled times. His work shows the power of paper and ink in the digital age.' Jeremy Bowen

'Poignant portraits that bring home the impact of the war' Mishal Husain

'George’s arresting, poignant images are complex reflections on the insane chaos of war. Emotions of bewilderment, pain, shock, anger, fatigue and loneliness rise from the page, but amidst them we also glimpse something else, the unquenchable spirit of the Ukrainian people. Understated but evident is their hope born from national resourcefulness, adaptability, courage, and determination. Forced by the hand of tyranny Ukraine has no choice but to fight if they are to retain their sovereignty. Sadly it seems that the price of freedom must always paid in blood. The blood Ukraine spills today will shape the world all of us will know tomorrow.' Ray Mears

'In my time serving in Ukraine, I witnessed the incredible strength and resourcefulness of the Ukrainian people, which George Butler so perfectly captures in his sensitive portraits and profiles. This book is a powerful testament to a people who are fighting for their lives and country and, in doing so, are fighting for all of us.' William B. Taylor, former US ambassador to Ukraine
