Sheet No.72: Collage of images drawn from the novel, including a windmill, lion, a pair of drawings of Don Quixote, paper and quill, and various weapons. Verso features coupons redeemable for a loaf of bread at Panaderia de Tio Felix in Huerta del Rey (Burgos), 1940.
The ration coupons were likely made during the 1970s and bear no resemblance to any surviving examples of real or official ration coupons printed and issued during the Spanish Civil War.
Recto: Image related to Don Quixote. Verso: perforated and divided into twelve small ration coupons.
A collection of simple sketches using only three colors (yellow, red, black) depicting objects and creatures evocative of the novel: a windmill, lion head with mane, dragon, busts of Don Quixote, paper and a quill, a helmet and various weapons such as pike, lance, fencing sword and a knife.
