Background

The images to the right are photomontages on spiral notebook paper, produced by surrealist artists André Breton, Paul Éluard & Suzanne Muzard around 1931. The authorship is impossible to attribute, as the collages were discovered in a spiral bound notebook when Breton's estate went up for auction in 2003, thirty-seven years after his death.

Introduction
