Advertising Cutters Notebooks Index

Over the years collectors have assembled information about the history of cookie cutters.  Milli Simerl was one of the historians who gave talks and wrote about cutters.  With the help of Lee Stephenson, six notebooks were published starting in 1999.  There were 3 notebooks about flour cutters:
  • Flour Cutters Volume I (A-G),
  • Flour Cutters Volume II (H-Pillsbury), 
  • Flour Cutters Volume III
  • and Baking Powder Advertising Cutters;
  • The Sweet One, Advertising and Premium Cutters from products using Sugar and Sweeteners;
  • and Advertising and Unusual Aluminum Cookie Cutters.
With Lee's permission, I have scanned the notebooks and compiled indexes for them.  There are 3 different indexes:
  • Brand Index, with all of the articles and illustrations compiled by brand name;
  • Comprehensive Index which compiles all the information alphabetically;  
  • and Index by Shape
The notebook PDF's are bookmarked to make it easy to locate a page when you find a cutter or article you want to read about.  I have formatted the pages for ease in reading by turning some of the pages and eliminating the blank pages.  If you are interested in printing the notebooks to paper, I have saved them in a separate folder labeled "For Print". This has all the pages as they were originally produced with the blank pages. 

PDF's of the notebooks and indexes are all together on a CD available for  $30 + $3 s&h

For those who do not have computer access:

Printed version of the index alone is $30.00 (3-hole punched) + s&h
Complete Advertising Cutters Notebooks is $60.00 (3-hole punched) + s&h
