Nadia Bailey


Genius, trailblazer, artist, fashion icon, Frida Kahlo was truly one of a kind – equal parts strong, passionate, talented and determined. From her early days growing up in Coyoacán and her childhood ill-health; her school days as one of very few women attending Mexico City’s renowned National Preparatory School (where she met Diego Rivera), and the tragic accident that would leave her with a lifetime of pain and artistic ambition; through to her rise to become one of Mexico’s most important and celebrated artists, her relationship with Diego, her friendships with the European surrealists, the sensation she caused with her first exhibition in New York, her contribution to culture as a whole and the unparalleled phenomena that is Frida Kahlo.

Featuring Susanna Harrison’s jaw-dropping illustrations, Frida A to Z celebrates the life, art, friendships, politics, beauty and agony surrounding one of the 20th Century’s most distinctive and important artistic voices – all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.
