The inside of the back cover has a “Cracker Jack Optical Illusion” “How Many Blocks. Six or Seven? Now You See It – Now You Don't!”
The back cover has a great picture of an early Cracker Jack box. There is also a Caution about Cracker Jack imitations.
The Cracker Jack Drawing Book measures about 2-1/2'' x 3-1/4''. It appears to be in good condition as pictured. There is tracing on some of the pages. The back cover is about half missing however, decades ago there just happened to be the same back cover from the same book that was found loose here and it has been kept with the booklet ever since.
