Dokument Press is both a publisher and a knowledge providing company with its roots in the Swedish hip hop movement. The company started in 2000, but has its origin in the graffiti magazine UP that was founded in 1992. Today, we have extended our range to include all types of urban cultural expressions.
We operate on several fronts:-
- Our acclaimed publishing work results in book titles that both reaches large audiences and affects social discourse.
