The Unlock Book Fair is the international gathering of publishers working with graffiti and related topics. After four annual instalments in Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam and Cologne, and several offshoot events in cities across Europe, the fair celebrates its fifth anniversary in Modena, Northern Italy.

If you love books, magazines and fanzines about graffiti, street art, urban exploration or street photography, don’t miss this extraordinary weekend-long meeting of cutting-edge, independent and underground projects. With an exciting program of lectures and book launches!

Most of our international friends will not be able to join us this time, and we will miss them. But the Italian graffiti publishing scene is thriving, and the fair is the perfect space to celebrate it. Enjoy!
