“YuIzdat” is created as a part of the future museum organization, which will deal primarily with artists’ books. The materials of the publisher’s projects aimed at establishing such a museum are published here.

Unless the specialized resource will be launched, the publication of the “Library of Mikhail Karasik” is also carried out here. This is mainly a book collection, presented by the artist, curator, researcher and inspirer of “YuIzdat” Mikhail Karasik (1953–2017) to the Saint-Petersburg Literary Museum “XX century” (Russia), where the head of the publishing house worked at that time. The “Library” continues to be replenished by generous gifters.
