Like placemat number one, this was drawn
on a white textured placemat paper with the same quarter inch
square pattern. It measures 9 inches wide by 8.5 high. All
four sides are slightly irregular as they were torn by Crumb
from a larger piece of paper. The middle of left bottle has
a hole approximately 1/8th inch square where Crumb's intense
cross hatching on the thin paper literally created the hole.
There is also a tiny pin hole in the lower left corner of the
back ground cross hatching where Crumb's Rapidograph pen snagged
the paper. The right milk bottle also has some white-out on
the interior left and right sides as well as the bottle top.
While minor, this could be regarded as a "flaw." It
also shows that Crumb took pride in these drawings he made while
"waiting for food" and did not wish them to reach collectors
hands with apparent flaws in his line work.
