This book contains two works, with Si Lewen's wordless novel, Parade, on one side of the accordion-fold and a monograph edited by Art Spiegelman with accompanying essay on the other. Parade depicts the horrors of endless war through the eyes of a Polish Jewish painter born right after World War 1 and includes outakes placed appropriately throughout. Spiegelman's essay chronicles Si Lewen's life, exploring Lewen's wish to see paintings hung so close together "so they could talk to one another."

This deluxe edition is handsomely bound in grey pebbled boards, and enclosed in a dark maroon cloth slipcase with an image from the novel onlaid on the front. Inside a special archival envelope is a folded print, with art by Lewen on one side, and signed and numbered by him, and on the other side of the fold, a small illustration by Spiegleman and his signature also.
