This copy of Frida Kahlo's diary is amazingly authentic. The photocopies of the pages are rich in color and the artwork is just phenomenal. Looking through the letters to Diego and other reflections that are included helps to give a more personal touch to one's understanding of who she was (if you are able to read in spanish). My heritage learner spanish class loved it!

Frida Kahlo was a fascinating, strong woman who I admire. Her rt work is not the "feel good" type, such as Monet or Renior, , but it is compelling and full of raw emotion. The things this woman went through are so harsh, from her accident, her multiple operations to her tumultuous marriage to Diego Rivera. All these things come to life in her art and in her personal diary. Her diary completely captivates me. It is so personal, as all good diaries are, that it really gives the reader a glimpse into the "real" Frida. A stunning book full of life, love, loss and anger. This is the heart and soul of Frida.

Great book to have. Love that they use the images of the real diary.

Haven't read all of it yet, but just learned of her physically painful life, which surely informs her art, which is brilliant.
