Dean's Cut-Out 'Snow White' Book

Dean & Sons Ltd of London published a Snow White cut-out book circa 1938. Includes the standard copyright disclaimer, "By Permission of Walt Disney-Mickey Mouse." Measures 9.5" x 13.5".

The book opens up to reveal a "film set" view of the forest and cottage on the inside covers. There are two separate sheets of cut-out figures for you to create your own model.

These sheets are completely uncut, a rare find today.

Another Dean's Cut-Out Book was published in 1938 with the title, The House of the Seven Dwarfs. We'll have a look at it in a future Archive entry.


  1. What a magnificent find I have the cover/panorama but no cutouts

  2. I think finding the cutouts still intact is rather rare for this book. I saw this one on ebay, but the seller was asking a bit more than I wanted to pay.

  3. I am a big fan of cutout/sticker/activity books! This one is especially amazing.

    1. Me too. I like the nice vintage style of the drawings on this one.
