Carroccio Biancaneve "Cut-Out" Doll Book

In an earlier post, we saw Snow White paper dolls featured in the 1938 Dean's Cut-Out Book, published by Dean & Sons Ltd. of London. The same book was also issued in Italy under the title, Albo di Costruzioni Biancaneve ei Sette Nani. It was published circa 1940 by Carroccio of Milan. Licensed by "Creazioni Walt Disney S.A.I." Measures approximately 9.5" x 13.5" (25 x 34 cm).



A forest cottage scene is displayed on the inside covers, making a nice backdrop for the paper dolls.



Over 45 cut-out figures were printed on two separate sheets (see them with the Dean book mentioned above). The back cover shows a scene with all of the paper dolls displayed in front of the forest backdrop. The instructions tell users to carefully cut the figures out and to place them upright in their support stands.
