Edition 2019

The Fair Literal is added to the celebrations of the year Brossa.

Transforming reality from the mating of elements that come from different contexts, playing with the shape of the letters, questioning the world from the activation of the gaze turn Brossa into a conjurer of the word, in a wizard that puts Manifest that nothing is what it seems. At the same time, the historical context in which he lived makes the poet a combative, critical, and harrowing creator, who uses the poetic language to shoot poison and hurt with the hardness of the words.

2018 Edition

This year, the fourth edition of the fair, with the collaboration of more than 80 publishers and bookstores. A meeting place and view of left-wing publishing market, which aims to go beyond a political book fair. A trade show where the media, books and editorial reviews are the protagonists but that, at the same time, do not exclude anyone.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of may 68, a global revolt that went from the streets of Paris in the squares of Mexico and who turned the thought of a whole generation and of the successive generations.
We have paraphrased the slogan of the may 68 French Sous les pavés, la plage. (Under the paving stones, the beach.) and we have updated for our purpose the book radical. Because we know that always, under the cobblestones, there will be books.

The fourth edition of the fair will be in Barcelona, in the old Fabra i Coats factory complex, in the street Sant Adrià, 20 in the District of Sant Andreu del Palomar, on 11, 12 and 13 may 2017. A fair is open to the public, free of charge with the intention to connect the different projects independent publishers and bookshops political book with a reading public with political and cultural concerns.
