From the publisher:
Best known for his artistic partnership with Harvey Kurtzman, Will Elder is finally getting the book he so richly deserves: this gigantic coffee table book collecting his best work from more than a half a century of drawing and painting. Included are stories from the original MAD comic, Humbug, Help!, and Little Annie Fanny pages shot directly from the original painted artwork!
Commentary by Hugh Hefner, Harvey Kurtzman, and Jerry Garcia. Introduction by Daniel Clowes. This is the seldom seen hardcover edition.
This came from the collection of Steve Sherman, a writer,artist, puppet-maker, puppet-performer, and avid collector.
