“Predominantly made in Germany, the largely anonymous designs were available throughout Europe at the beginning of the 20th century but have never been published before in a single edition. They range from the quite disturbing (a collage of 40 crying baby faces) to the amusing (babies travelling up river, neatly stashed in flower pots) and, as in Melly’s gift to Breton, an intriguing combination of the two.”

Babylon: Surreal Babies is published by Dewi Lewis; £16.99. See dewilewispublishing.com.
