These weird and wonderful postcards show babies as never seen before. Babies hatch from eggs, bubble from cauldrons, are fished from rivers, emerge in a cabbage patch, sit atop clouds and ride in zeppelins. They play instruments, drive cars, fly in balloons and harvest the fields - an anarchistic world of baby heaven. The postcards, found in France, were a source of inspiration to many artists in the 1920s and 30s, in particular to the Dadaists and the Surrealists.
