In the 2005, a small book was published about Erast Binyashevsky, entitled «Світ Української Писанки» (The World of the Ukrainian Pysanka).  It was printed on poor quality paper, with cheap inks, but did include many of Binyashevsky’s previously unpublished pysanky.

The book contained two plus pages of pysanky from Pokuttia.  I’ve taken a scanned copy of the book, separated and enhanced the photos, and uploaded them below.  I’v included translations of the names–as always, they should be taken with a grain of salt.  Binyashevsky was wont to make up names if pysanky did’t have them, and to change existing ones.
