Approximately 30 artists, curators, and authors give statements, and 12 color double pages feature Parkett editions in private collections, a special large size fold-out poster, and a group picture of all editions. Also included is an index of the past 20 years that includes all 200 artists, 150 editions, 700 authors, 60 Parkett inserts, and 15 spines.
