    Al Jaffee - "Memories of a Munchkin" Illustration Original Art, Group of 2 (Back Stage Books, 2005). Al Jaffee, inventor of the famous Mad Fold-In, created a special Fold-In to celebrate Meinhardt Raabe and the "Wizard of Oz." For his caption quote in the book, Jaffee wrote, "One thing I've noticed about the 'Wizard of Oz' is that it has a fan-base following similar to that of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' with activities that are just as fun and most entertaining." The art for this Fold-in was done on two pieces of illustration board. The large group scene with Dorothy has an image area of 15" x 14.5", while a smaller portrait of the Munchkin Coroner (played by Meinhardt Raabe) has an image area of 5.5" x 6". Both pieces of art are in Excellent condition.
