"Nothing can equal the psychological effect of real art . . . Our time needs you and your work!" - Albert Einstein, from his introduction to the 1957 edition of The Parade The Parade is a timeless story told in a language that knows no country-a wordless epic that, despite its muteness, is more powerful than the written or the spoken word. First published in 1957 in a limited edition, The Parade is a lost classic, newly discovered, remastered and presented by Art Spiegelman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus. Reproduced in a unique accordion-fold format as a "procession of drawings that remain in close dialogue with one another" as the artist originally intended, The Parade is the story of recurring war as Si Lewen experienced it over 90 years ago, watching the joyful parades that marked the end of World War I lead into the death marches of World War II and the Korean War. As The Parade unfolds, the reader is taken on a relentless journey of sequential images.
