Fly to Paris

Let Them Out

Mix and match pictures have been around for centuries, in everything

from fortune cards to games of chance. In the mid-nineteenth century, they  were incorporated in children’s toy blocks and puzzles. In Paris in the  1920’s, the surrealists added their

own wrinkle with a parlor game that used sentence fragments on folded
