HERE'S THE BRIDE, 1960
Restored from a Pocket-Folder Set
Six dolls, props, covers and inside covers = eight pages on cardstock, then eight more pages of costumes on 32#, makes a nice big 16 page book of Wedding FUN! Really lovely artwork on the covers and pretty clothes for the big event and for the parties and honeymoon trip afterward. The dolls are painted nicely with pretty faces and good proportions. Bride, Groom, Maid of Honor, Best Man, Flower Girl and Ring Bearer...and clothes for each of them. The female clothes have the softer, feminine styles of the late 50s...before they got all stiff and straight, as they did later in the 60s.
If you want to recreate the look of the original book, you can cut slits across the centers of the two inside pages, paste all around the edges, and stick to the covers...then you'll have pockets in which to store the cut (or not) dolls and clothes. Either way you'll have a set more like the 1960 version first done by Whitman. This version is only slightly reduced from the original. Even though it's only 49 years old, there was some ageing and repairs to do to make it fresh and bright again. A very pretty set!
PS- Whitman's product # was #1948
This is a stapled BOOK. We are delighted to present this vintage restored/reprinted "perfect bound" (stapled) book from Forget-me-Not Publishing (FMN). These are 11”x17" sheets printed in permanent laser colors, on top grade papers, folded and stapled to a finished size of 8.5x11. This new formatting may result in a reduction of 5 to 23% smaller than the originally published size. Costume pages are on Bright white archival 32# laser paper. Covers are on archival 80# laser cover stock paper. These papers are a dream to cut...nice clean edges, no popping of inks, very smooth and fun to handle. We slip the book into a crystal clear archival protective Mylar sleeve to keep it nice and clean.
