Al Jaffee & the Mad “Fold In”

This will be brief.  I was going through my favorites and found this,

The above link is to a great interactive site that has all of the Mad “Fold-In” back covers starting from the 1960’s.  This is another great example of a master cartoonist, great draftsmanship, usually really funny gags and most of these are full paintings.  Also since the magazine was & still is very topical it’s a bit of a history lesson, or at the very least a glimpse of the zeitgeist of America through the years.  Check it out it’s really impressive; by the way I’ll be getting back to food soon I just haven’t been in a recipie typing mood lately.
