Ein ganzseitiges Bild mit Text, dass durch zweimaliges Falten eine ganz andere Bedeutung erlang.
Hier gibt es alle Faltbilder in einem riesigen Schuber mit 4 Bänden.
Ich war erst skeptisch, da das Falten der Bilder ja schon die Hefte merklich beinträchtig hat und bei so einem
wertvollen Superband diesen ruinieren könnte.
Was man hier nicht sieht:
jedem Bild ist eine Doppelseite gewidmet. Einmal das "Original" und auf der anderen Seite eine Abbildung
der gefalteten Version.
Zwar geht damit der interaktive Charakter und die Überraschung des Faltens verloren, aber dafür hat man eine knitterfreie Version, die noch ein paar Jahrzehnte überdauern mag.
der Preis hier schwankt immer zwischen Listenpreis 91,50€ und ca 65€ ... also den richtigen Moment abwarten.
Humor, der in seiner Klarheit und seinem Witz bis heute unübertroffen ist!

Yeah, Mad got you somewhere when you were around eleven or twelve and kept its brutal grip on you until you were around eighteen (when you shifted to Playboy), but even then you missed the creepy little magazine. Mad Magazine is actually what first got you interested in politics, national and world events, and the kooky cast of public characters which lead us down our strange path of highly ill-advised and never-ending human folly. In fact, I'm curious right now what Mad has to say about Romney, and Newt, and that feisty little Ron Paul.
Mad is what taught us to be proud of our irreverence and audacity. Mad taught us it was okay to be a smart-aleck, as long as our snarky comments met a certain level of intelligence (not very high, granted). Mad gave us a keen awareness of, and appreciation for, an entire array of human dysfunction. "What, me worry?" Well, I did worry some in those years, but Mad made me worry a lot less. Mad made life seem a whole lot more fun. Alfred Neuman was a buddy of mine. He inspired me to be comfortable being a trouble-maker . And that attitude is with me to this day.
I'm on my second Jack Daniels, and I was going to write this review later, when I had more time. But I just read what some other goofball wrote about this set, which was only lukewarm and otherwise highly confusing, and I felt like I needed to respond right now. The record needs to be set straight. The truth needs to be told. I'm Mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!!
To proclaim Al Jaffe as anything less than a certified genius is a travesty. Reviewing these fold-ins, I was reminded of how insightful the man is, and how clever these fold-ins have been for half a century. A few are black and white, in the first volume, but most are in beautiful color. I'd take an original Jaffe over an original Warhol any day. The clue, or riddle, at the top tantalizes you. Some images allow for you to guess what the fold-in image might be, and others totally surprise you. I had forgotten that the caption at the bottom also folds-in and transforms to say some new phrase that appertains to the point being made. These are brilliant geometric odysseys. All types of political phenomena are covered; a fascinating spectrum of then-current issues are reviewed. This set is vast, approximately 800 pages; really, to review all the plates, you'll need at least a weekend. This is one-fifth of American history with its middle-finger stuck straight up in the air. It doesn't get any better than this. This is what the Founding Forefathers were thinking when they invented that First- Amendment- thing. "People should be able to talk shxx, and say whatever irreverent, naughty stuff they want to say, even if it is really stupid. Or even if it is painfully insightful. " Yep, the gang at Mad grabbed the ball and ran.
I'm a book collector. I know well made books when I see them. I don't get all that excited very often by new publications. This set is of staggering quality. Chronicle Books is to be commended for their effort. Cloth covered, four volume set in heavy-duty slip-case. Premium paper. Vivid color reproduction. Bound to become a collector's item. Heavy as hell, please don't let your wife or children carry it up the stairs to your man-den. Someone might get hurt. Put it in the oak bookshelf, next to your Don Martin set. Prepare a codicil to your will, designating which kid or grandkid gets it, so there won't be in-fighting. Sleep better at night, knowing that a premium-grade symbol of your teen years is near at hand, ready to take you back to your ill-begotten roots whenever you need a reminder of who you really are and where you came from.
Every fold-in is presented over two pages - Unfolded version on the left page and folded version on the right.
This has the obvious advantages of not having to worry about mutilating your newly purchased little treasure by actually folding the pages, and also having the images optimally "folded" (which sometimes was badly done by the reader).
The only disadvantage of this format, is that viewing both images simultaneously somewhat takes the sting out of the whole joke, like telling a one-liner backwards...
To overcome this, a good practice would be to watch it with the help of an A4 paper to cover the right page (folded image), which will present you with enough time to digest the full image and text on the left before revealing the outcome on the right. This will give you as close as possible an experience as the real thing.
Each volume has a short forward, with the first one by Al Jaffee himself, that tells the story of how the concept was conceived (the answer to Playboy's fold-out...) and approved (.. any potential buyer would probably buy another copy for his collection after mutilating his first one...)
In addition to the wonderful sense of humor it also serves as a distilled look at what's on a nation's mind for the last nearly half a century.
Pages are numbered by publication year and month instead of numbers, which is very convenient, and thus no table of contents or index is needed.
There's also one exclusive contemporary fold-in at the end of the last volume, with a very funny and personal touch , along with amusing instructions on the back of the page.
I won't disclose anything - just buy and enjoy... :-)
The side by side presentation - folded on one page, unfolded on the opposite page - is unique.
This presentation really allows one to visualize the creative work that goes into this Mad-only process.
If for some crazy reason you don't like it, the four books with slip case is heavy enough and beautiful enough to make an impressive door stop.
