Al Jaffee, Creator of the Fold In for Mad Magazine
Browsing through Brain Pickings the November 28, 2011 blog about the The 11 Best Art and Design Books of 2011 listed in position number 9, THE MAD FOLD-IN COLLECTION. This book caught my interest immediately. Many Americans, if not all, have perused an issue or two to several hundred of Mad Magazine in our lives. And one of the enjoyable parts of an issue is the fold-in. The video interview below, A Few Minutes With Someone Funnier Than You: A Few Minutes with Al Jaffee, is with the creator of the fold-in, Al Jaffee. In this interview, one of UCB YouTube offerings, he's 89 years old and still working for Mad Magazine!!! We should all be as bright, vital, and creative as he is at 89. The Brain Pickings post has several samples besides the interview below.
