Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera: Detrás del Espejo, Su Arte y Sus Pasiones
(Two books in slip case)
They met in 1928, Frida Kahlo was then 21 years old and Diego Rivera was twice her age. He was already an international reference, she only aspired to become one. An intense artistic creation, along with pain and suffering, was generated by this tormented union, in particular for Frida. Constantly in the shadow of her husband, bearing his unfaithfulness and her jealousy, Frida exorcised the pain on canvas, and won progressively the public s interest. On both continents, America and Europe, these committed artists proclaimed their freedom and left behind them the traces of their exceptional talent. In this book, Gerry Souter brings together both biographies and underlines with passion the link which existed between the two greatest Mexican artists of the 20th century.

There is a lot to show about Mexico and coffee table books are a great option of doing so. We chose some examples, from a general view of the country, to specific topics like art (Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are probably the most famous ones), culture (Day of the Dead has become quite popular), architecture (showing traditional as well as modern houses), food (with great recipes), and of course, Tequila (all you need to know about the liquor).
