The New York Times recently published “A Veteran MAD Man Remains in the Fold”, a really great article about Al Jaffee, the 87 year-old artist who’s been creating those wonderful Fold-Ins on the back page of Mad Magazine since 1964. The article includes a gallery of his Fold-Ins past and present.
Here’s an example of one of Al’s classic back page Fold-Ins from Mad Magazine spoofing the 1972 presidential election.
“Mad Fold This Book!: A Ridiculous Collection of Fold-Ins” is a book of Al’s Fold-In art that was published in 1997 and is still available.
