    George Woodbridge Attache Case Portfolio with Mad #327 Original Art Contents (EC, 1994). The late George Woodbridge spent nearly fifty years making us all laugh through his exquisitely detailed, and incredibly funny pen and ink drawings published by Mad. A stickler for details, Woodbridge was also well-known as an illustrator for military history books, cranking out faithfully researched, highly detailed art for such books as his three-volume set, American Military Equipage, 1851-1872. Here's his original portfolio, a handsome black leather-finish attache case, measuring approximately 21" x 27" x 4". A hard wax stamp appears on the top edge, featuring his initials, and a small plaque inscribed "G. Woodbridge" is mounted by the handle. Inside, there's a note from Woodbridge on his stationery, a photocopy of an illustration, and two pages of Woodbridge original art from Mike Snider's Mad #327 story "Thanks to Home Video Cameras We Now Have on Tape --," done in grey wash on 17.5" x 17.5" bristol. A copy of the issue is included. The case is in Very Good condition, with only modest wear, and the art is in Excellent condition. This is a wonderful memento from a Mad fan favorite. From the Estate of Robert Woodbridge.
