Gorgeous. Stunning. A true celebration of Frida Kahlo.

Congratulations to Kathy Cano-Murillo – aka the Crafty Chica – who has outdone herself with her 10th book, FOREVER FRIDA, published by Adams Media and released on Frida Kahlo’s birthday July 9th.

BOOK SUMMARY:  With her colorful style, dramatic self-portraits, hardscrabble backstory, and verve for life, Frida Kahlo remains a modern icon, captivating and inspiring artists, feminists, and art lovers more than sixty years after her death.

FOREVER FRIDA celebrates all things Frida, so you can enjoy her art, her words, her style, and her badass attitude every day.  From the self-portraits, to the flower crown, to her iconic eyebrows—this is a fun and commemorative book. 

“There are no chapters”, says Kathy about the book on her blog post. “The book is very organic and loose. You can open it up to any page and find a standalone entry about Frida. Whether its a quote or a piece of trivia. I didn’t add in any editorial angles, I let Frida’s life, work, and personality lead the way.”

Viva Frida!  Viva Kathy!
