Surreal Babies

Postcards of babies doing weird and wonderful things from the 1920's and 30's were avidly collected and used as a source of inspiration by Surrealists and Dadaists of that time.  Little is known about their history.

A new book compiled by James Birch,  Babylon: Surreal Babies shows them hatching from eggs, riding in zeppelins, driving cars and so much more.

It makes me wonder, what is its equivalent from last year?  Any ideas?
