Saraband Ltd is an award-winning independent publisher of outstanding fiction, absorbing nature writing, important environmental books, and compelling memoir and biographies.

Praised in the Guardian as “a small but brilliant independent press,” we publish authors with deep knowledge of the culture, landscape, wildlife, folk traditions, and history wherever they live. Our fiction includes literary, historical, and contemporary stories reflecting UK and international perspectives, all with unforgettable voices. Our books inspire, inform and entertain. Our aim is that each new title will make the world a better place.

Founded in 1994, we’ve published authors who have been nominated for most of the UK’s most prestigious literary prizes—including the Booker Prize, Wainwright Prize for Nature Writing, Desmond Elliott Award for debut authors, and all categories of Scotland’s National Book Awards—as well as several international prizes.
