AL JAFFEE'S MAD FOLD-INS

Al Jaffee at workAl Jaffee, 92, famed for his “fold-ins” at Mad, is giving some of the original art and other material from his 70-year career to the rare book and manuscript library at Columbia University. Said Jaffee: “It will keep my stuff in New York City, which has been very good to me.” Among the treasures — some fold-ins in all stages of development, from the first “thumbnail squiggle” (as Jaffee described it) to the large sheets of tracing paper with sketches in colored pencil to the final painted board. Columbia has the papers and artwork from several cartoonists — comic book writer Chris Claremont, Wendy and Richard Pini (Elfquest comics), and alum Jerry Robinson.
