QUESTION OF THE MOMENT
A very bearded Alfred crops up on #524. On what regular issues has he appeared hairier?
About 13 years ago I bought a house and really wanted to make my office something unique. I decided to laser copy some of my favorite Mad covers and use them as wallpaper. To this day I've not grown tired of looking at them, mainly because I have no business and only use my office to walk through to get to my bar out back.
Very impressive. Looks like it took a lot of work. I put all the photos you sent in a big, long strip here.
Thanks for sharing your room.
p.s. Mad's blog has taken notice of your efforts!
...your site is really an important reference - not only of the many decades that Mad Magazine has been published, but also of the type of humor that was prevalent in each decade. You are in many ways an historian and have done a great job.

Have you seen Mad artist Tom Richmond's fantastic book?
If you happened upon my site and you actually made it this far down the page, I've got news for you: You have more than a passing interest in Mad Magazine. And if you haven't had the pleasure of reading Frank Jacobs' masterpiece The Mad World of William M. Gaines, then I'm not sure what to say.
A couple more older books that are required for your collection are Dick DeBartolo's Good Days and Mad and Maria Reidelbach's Completely Mad. Both books will give you history and laughs aplenty!

|What's with all the Amazon links? For years I've been directing visitors to Amazon pages.
For every dollar you spend on anything at Amazon after clicking through from a link on my site,
I see about a nickel in the form of a gift certificate, which I use to buy Mad-related merchandise,
computer books, ecch! So consider coming here first the next time you want to go to Amazon.
