This book is published as a companion to the second Unlock Book Fair, taking place in Berlin September 2017. The focus of this year's fair is North American railroad cultures, which include moniker graffiti, hobo culture, train hopping and freight train graffiti - culture of a scope and depth little known outside of the US. The most obscure of these traditions is the nineteenth and early twentieth century hobo culture and graffiti presented in this volume.
