Birth Announcement Kangaroo, 1959, by Alexander Calder

When Cleve and Francine du Plessix Gray sent out birth announcements for their son, their friend Alexander Calder sent it back, all kangarooified.

These photos are from Calder's Universe, Jean Lipman and Ruth Wolfe's catalogue for the artist's 1977 retrospective.
