Never compromise.

That seemed to be mantra of Frida Kahlo, a renowned artist whose work has been celebrated internationally by feminists for its real depiction of the female experience and form.

Frida fans of all ages will delight in this fabulous paper doll set celebrating the artist and fashion
icon. Included here are thirty of her signature ensembles, plus a bonus paper doll of husband Diego Rivera with two outfits of his own. This includes 2 paper dolls, 32 outfits, full-color illustrations, bilingual text (Spanish and English).

Frida expressed her emotion through her art. Born in 1907 in Mexico, she contracted polio at the age of 6, survived a major trolley car accident at 18, and struggled emotionally as an adult. “I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
