Riassunto: COLLECTIBLY MAD. Special Limited Edition of 500 signed by MAD publisher William C. Gaines and author/musician Grant Geissman. Hardcover book housed in a deluxe slipcase with a foil-embossed E.C. logo. $150 sound a little pricey? Consider that only 500 deluxe editions were published and this is the ONLY book Bill Gaines (1922-1992) EVER SIGNED! And this is the original retail price from fifteen years ago. The book is an extensive illustrated history of MAD magazine collectibles starting with its comic book inception from genius cartoonist/editor Harvey Kurtzman in 1952 (see also The Art of Harvey Kurtzman from Abrams). Collectibly MAD is a fat 320-page square compendium. Not at all square is author Geissman, the world s authority on MAD collectibles, not to mention a respected jazz musician (Chuck Mangione band, TV/movie scores). Limited to just five hundred Signed & Numbered copies, this is the ultimate book (or gift) for any MAD or comics fan s library. Published by Kitchen Sink Press in 1995, several years after Gaines (who died in 1992) signed the historic bookplates. These are the last of publisher Denis Kitchen s personal inventory, still in mint condition in the original shrink-wrap.
