An Intimate Self-Portrait
This hardcover facsimile edition of Frida Kahlo’s Personal Diary has sold hundreds of thousands of copies internationally and has been translated into multiple languages since 1994. The work reproduces the diary of the Mexican painter and has a special section with the transcription of its content. It is complemented by an essay by Sarah M.

The introduction of the work is a contribution of the prestigious Mexican writer Carlos Fuentes.
