Historic Cover | Friday Face Off

This is a weekly thing created by Books by Proxy, but currently run by Lynn’s Book Blog.

This week’s theme: “The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe… has been answered” –  a cover featuring something/somebody historic 

My pick: The Diary of Frida Kahlo

Paperback (1998) by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC | Hardcover (1995) by Norma | Hardcover (1998) by Harry N. Abrams

Arabic (2011) by دار نينوى للدراسات والنشر والتوزيع  | Hardcover (2001) by La vaca independiente | Czech (2003) by Labyrint

Italian (2014) by Electa | Serbian (2002) by Clio

My favourite

I’ve loved Frida Kahlo’s work for a long time. People know her for her feminism, but the most important thing she’s shown me is how she conveyed the physical pain she felt. I think the 1998 cover is the only one I’ve found that really shows that part of her art.
