    Description

    Al Jaffee MAD Magazine #207 Inside Back Cover Fold-In Illustration Painting Original Art (EC, 1979). Al Jaffee's very first "MAD" Fold-In was in issue #86 in 1964. Since then, he has had a mind-blowing almost uninterrupted run in every single issue since! That's over fifty years of frantic fans mangling their copies of "MAD Magazine" to read the punchline and see the hidden gag artwork! This one asks "What Heavy Drinker Should be Kept Off the Road??" The hidden Fold-In answer is "The gas guzzling car!" and the image would fold into an old truck. Created in Gouache on illustration board with stat paste-up text that is discolored. It is signed by Jaffee in the painted bottom image area with an image size of 17" x 13". There are small pinholes, production tape in the boarders, spots of adhesive residue, and light toning. In Very Good condition. From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
