I have to mail some RANKIN/BASS packages right now! Do you remember when the post office had a cool advertising character like MR. ZIP (Image from the NEW book AD BOY) instead of rising postal rates that change every three months?

My pal LANE SMITH did this piece of art for me back when we issued the MAD MONSTER PARTY soundtrack on CD, for the booklet. LANE designed JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH and has illustrated and written many wonderful children's books including THE STINKY CHEESE MAN and the last DR. SEUSS book.
