    This book is amazing. The haunting images alone are worth it (It's Kahlo, for god's sake!) and there's an English language translation of the text included. ...

    If you're about to read this expecting a traditional 'what I did today' -diary, you're in for a big surprise. Then again, if you already know Frida Kahlo you wouldn't really expect that, would you? Originally not intended to be published, through Kahlo's diary you get inside her head i...

    i took my time with frida's diary: one. because the emotion she reached inside of me felt raw and sometimes heavy but two. because i didn't want to come to its finish. i'm slightly obsessed (proudly) with this woman and find myself moved in ways that enrich my soul every time ...

    Frida Kahlo's diary is worth the read. It contains sketches that thematically connect to her paintings that are far more well know, however the texture and raw quality is quite different. You see her process and even for an artist who was so revealing in her work, there is more to see ...

    This is a facsimile of Frida Kahlo's diary, so of course it is awesome. 4 instead of 5 stars for bad layout decisions. I can kind of understand why, for example, all of the translation is at the end of the book, so as not to interrupt the flow of the diary itself, but it could have bee...

    I really didn't enjoy this book. I thought it was going to be a basic translated version of Frida Kahlo's diary with a brief introduction of some kind about her and her life, It isn't. This book begins with a long larbourious introduction which, I felt, at times strays completely from ...

    "PAREJA EXTRAÑA DEL PAÍS DEL PUNTO Y LA RAYA" Halagos sobran para este magnifico libro, es toda una obra de arte hecha por la increíble Frida. Empezando por la bellísima edición: esa imagen en la sobrecubierta, ésa que tanto significo para su autora, igualmente hermos...

    Who would say that stains live and help one to live? Ink, blood, odor. Oh, Frida, Frida, Frida. What else is there to say? This is beautiful. There is nothing more precious than laughter and scorn - It is strength to laugh and lose oneself. to be cruel and light. Tragedy i...
