The Unlock Showcase is a travelling pop-up bookstore focused on graffiti and street art. Our books are sourced from the Unlock Book Fair, an event that brings together independent and underground publishers from all over Europe. These are publications printed in short runs and scarcely distributed, you won’t find them in regular bookstores!

The Unlock Book Fair is the international publishing fair for graffiti and street art. It provides publishers, artists and aficionados with a unique space for meeting and exchange. It has thus become the annual meeting point for this thriving publishing scene, and the place to showcase the most cutting-edge projects in the field. The fair has taken place in Barcelona (2016), Berlin (2017) and Amsterdam (2018), and in 2019 it travels to Cologne.

In the past three years the Unlock Showcase pop-up bookstore has visited Lisbon, Moscow, London, Tartu, Besançon, Wien, Cáceres, Málaga, Madrid, Aberdeen and Lund. Next stop is Kassel, don’t miss it!
