Yelena Yemchuk’s acrylic paintings can appear simple and playful at first glance – until the viewer notices that a smiling zebra is stabbing himself, and that a friendly-looking alligator is poking a goose with an épée. The stories surrounding these small scenes are not always clear, but they are influenced by folk tales from Ms. Yemchuk’s native Ukraine. The artist is also a photographer whose work has appeared in W Magazine and Italian Vogue

10th Anniversary Celebration with Sarabande Books.
Sarabande Books is a nonprofit literary press founded in March 1994, in Louisville, Kentucky. Our focus is on poetry and short fiction, genres that in the recent past have received less than generous attention from the mainstream publishing industry. In an effort to mediate that imbalance and to nurture good writing, Sarabande Books works to provide talented authors with a final product and visibility, in short, a real “home” for their work.
First titles appeared June 1996 in beautiful, four-color, simultaneous paperback and cloth-bound editions. We now publish between eight and ten new volumes per year. We’re convinced that quality book design contributes to a literary work’s value and are committed to keeping our titles in print.
