About the artist's book
The Dreams of Frida Kahlo, a limited edition of only 2,998 copies, goes beyond simply Kahlo's myth and iconic image to take an exciting journey to discover her art and what life was really like for the artist.
Introduction
The Art Book contains a unique selection of 34 works in pencil, ink, sepia and watercolour that Kahlo created in notebooks, diary pages or letters she sent to her family and friends.

A separated folder contains a large-scale original-sized reproduction of The Liar (El pájaro nalgón, 1946).This sepia drawing on paper is an enigmatic mosaic of figures, at the centre of which is Kahlo's famous eyebrows.

The Study Book, the first in-depth analysis of all known drawings by Frida Kahlo, is illustrated by 100 drawings and a range of paintings and photos.

The Case Sculpture reproduces the painting Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird (1940), which is revealed behind a veil of die-cut wooden leaves. Frida's intense gaze invites us to delve into her most personal and unknown works to discover her most intimate side.
