    1. A great book, very recommended. The painter's life is so emotional and the book worth to be bought definitely. A piece of a collection.


    2. Perfect, i highly recoomend this book. I read it b years ago amd bought it here for a great price. If you love frida, you will love her diary. Studying her photos in her journal gave me alot of information and perspectivw on her spiritual amd life experiences. I found frida at the lowest point of my life, bedbound and very sick.

    3. Absolutely loved this!! I got this for my best friends birthday because she loves Frida Kahlo! It is so good and I’m glad I got a copy for my self as well. Highly recommend this if your a fan of Frida or like art in general.

    5. This book -- I love this book. The translation is in the back and it's very easy to flip back and forth between her journal and the notes -- I just used some sticky notes to mark my places.

    6. Love this book everything about it's amazing I got fo the plane ride to Mexico City to see Frida house it was perfect for my trip if you love frida bye it
