Anyone else remember these vintage fairy tale books with the fancy “winky” cover inserts? If you are of a certain age, they are iconic as well as nostalgic.
Often called 3-D books, the iconic images on the front cover are actually lenticular designs created in Japan. Most of these books date to the 1960s. By the 1970s, the books were republished without the plastic inserts on the covers; instead, they were replaced with standard photographs of the posed puppets Those images themselves are rather iconic — to those of us who are of a certain age. This one is The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson illustrated by Shiba Productions and published by Golden Books. Via Little Slice of Heaven.

DO you know if anyone still has a copy of this book. I had one as a child and been looking a replacement ever since.
I had this very book when I was a kid! I remember the cover vividly. Trying to explain it to people has been difficult. Now I can!
Who knew that a book I had as a kid would be worth so much now?
This is often how it goes, Carole — we want what we lost 😉
