Art Books on Frida Kahlo

To celebrate her, may we suggest some excellent biographical and coffee-table art books on Frida Kahlo:


frida kahlo diary
The Diary of Frida Kahlo: An Intimate Self-Portrait
by Frida Kahlo

Her bizarre life, filled with more theatre and characters than a Fellini film, more physical and mental agony than most humans can endure is one that deserves her own thoughts, although at times they are convoluted. Whether she was under the influence(doped to mask pain) is irrelevant: spellbinding text +  illustrations that captivate the imagination, take readers on a surrealistic journey as only Frida can.

This grotesquely beautiful book, rich in imagery, literally + illustrated in the unique style of Frida Kahlo, reflects the pain and suffering she lived, both self-inflicted and through fate.
