This is a signed limited edition (No. 130 of 500 copies) illustrated guide to Mad Magazine memorabilia and collectibles. The book's author, Grant Geissman, is an Emmy-nominated composer and jazz guitarist as well as a lifelong Mad enthusiast. Features an interview with the legendary Bill Gaines, Mad's longtime publisher. Both signed on the bookplate, which must have been prepared well in advance since Gaines passed away in 1992. Fine.
