|Calvo. Anatomies Atomique (1946)|

I recently discovered this exquisite corpse game in the French language section of the Schmulowitz Collection of Wit & Humor (SCOWAH). Published just after World War II, Anatomies Atomiques was illustrated by the French cartoonist Edmond-Francois Calvo (1892-1958). This version of the game has 4,098 different combinations. The last page depicts one of my favorites, so very appropriate for this time of year. Happy Halloween!
