Frida Kahlo has empowered generations of feminists with her provocative artwork about her disability following a terrible accident, her sexual freedom, her contemplations on motherhood and her Mexican heritage. Incorporating excerpts from her letters and diaries, this new book, Library of Luminaries: Frida Kahlo: An Illustrated Biography (Chronicle Books) tells the artist’s story, from her early dreams to become a doctor and her relationship with Diego Rivera to how she developed her wonderfully eclectic wardrobe. All of these lovely illustrations were done by Nina Cosford and the text handwritten by Zena Alkayat. Want a sneak peak of this lovely book? We’ve chosen some of our favorite drawings just for you!
