A wonderful, unused, colorful paper doll booklet from the Singer Pavilion at the New York’s World Fair. The two die-cut paper dolls found on the title page are labeled “Peter” and “Wendy” (perhaps recalling the 1960 made for TV movie titled Peter Pan). National costumes from Thailand, the U.S.A., Austria, Mexico, France, Africa, Italy, Eskimo garb, Japan, and Sweden are ready for cutting out on the line and dressing the dolls. A large Unisphere die-cut appears on the last stiff leaf and can be punched-out and placed on its corresponding stand.
Thumbnail color illustrations of the New York State Pavilion, the Federal Pavilion, Festival of Gas, Eastman Kodak, India, Holland, Johnson’s Wax Pavilion, General Motors are pictured on the.
