Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Il Monumento Continuo (1969-1970) is the best-known project by Italian design collective Superstudio. It consists of a series of photomontages of existing landscapes superimposed with gridded superstructures that would wrap the world. The first proposals were exhibited at 'Trigon '69' at the Künstlerhaus Graz.

Perhaps the most famous photomontage of the series is New New York, an aerial view of New York covered with a grid.
