Saraband began publishing independently in 2013 in the UK, but has worked with publishers internationally, in North America, Europe and Asia. Saraband maintains strong editorial and design and high production values for physical books to make them special in a world where so much has become disposable. 

The publishing company has also been early adopters of various digital formats. It has been simultaneously publishing in print and digital for some years; publishing its first app in 2009 and having since moved on to projects including fixed-layout epub for iPads/phones, an app for smartphones that went viral – Burns Night – and producing its own audiobooks.
