Mad Magazine Old English Font

(click for larger view)

I was thumbing through scans of a 1966 high school year book, and this page jumped out at me. I thought "Holy Cow -- this the MAD magazine Old English Font!!!!!". I have been an aficionado of MAD magazine since I could read. I was even punished for it because I parents thought that it was subversive and disrespectful. I used to use my paperboy money to buy them and before I discovered other types of magazines, MAD magazine was the periodical hidden under my mattress.

I download a lot of fonts from the free font site www.dafont.com . If I knew how to make fonts, I would make this example into a font. It sure brings back the memories.
