1952 Snow White Paint Book, Whitman 678:10

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Paint Book, no. 678:10. Produced by Whitman Publishing Company, 1952. "© Walt Disney Productions." Dimensions: 11" high x 8" wide.

The same illustration is pictured on the front and back cover.

The Whitman "Authorized Edition" featured images partially filled in with red highlights. Other editions have been seen without the red coloring.

Illustrations and text copyright Walt Disney Productions/Whitman 1952. Posted here for historical documentation purposes only.


A rather unusual copy of this coloring book was seen for sale on the UK ebay site. It included numerous duplicate pages, several of which are in full color. It's possible that multiple coloring books were combined; it is bound together with three large staples along the right side. Maybe this was some kind of mock-up.

The title page features a blonde Snow White and reads, "Adprint London. Published by arrangement with Western Printing and Lithographing Company, Racine, Wisconsin USA. Made and printed in Great Britain by Robinson LTD. London."
