"Let's go see the Frida Kahlos."

It seemed inconceivable that after decades of exhibitions, auctions, books, and movies, unpublished Frida Kahlo artwork could still be found anywhere, much less a shop in a converted textile factory.

Wow. This is a gorgeously laid out book with incredible visuals, that oddly enough, were supported with fascinating text. I've always been fascinated my ephemera and the story it tells vs the story we recall, and this book is a nice tangent to that (although in Frida's case there is much history to supplement the ephemera and there isn't much supposition).
there are not enough stars to rate the magnitude of beauty, craft, and composition (visual and narrative) contained in these pages. this is no coffee table space-holder. it is compelling, engaging, and absolutely stunning!
It's a light read but ephemera, Frida Kahlo, musings on collecting, and lots of pretty pictures makes this book predictably enjoyable for me. Frida's self-portrait of herself as a deer with an Aztec figure above is one of my favourite pieces of hers, and the talk of forgery is political and to be expected and doesn't bother me a bit.
This book is written in English and in Spanish. Lots of pictures. I will enjoy it I think.
