An illustrated A to Z celebrating the unparalleled impact of the artistic phenomenon that is Frida Kahlo.
This intricately illustrated and fastidiously researched book unpacks the life of Frida Kahlo, who herself was larger than life. From growing up in Coyoacán, Mexico City, in her family home, where she embraced sports--including wrestling--to overcome 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.
Track Frida's rise as one of Mexico's most important and celebrated artists, her friendships with European surrealists, the sensation caused by her first exhibition in New York, her contribution to popular culture, and the unparalleled phenomenon that is Frida Kahlo. This book looks at the life, art, collaborations, friendships, politics, beauty, and agony surrounding one of the twentieth century's most distinctive and important artistic voices--all in a brilliantly illustrated A to Z format.
Any meal is only as good as the company with whom it's shared, which is why this book unites food and its local community.
This cookbook is a celebration of shared homes and their most iconic dishes--the food designed to feed the crowd, without breaking the bank or spending hours in the kitchen. It is a book about community, warmth, love, and the unique connection of a nurturing home, where shared meals are central to the environment. Plus, without getting preachy or "clean 'n green eating" about it, all the recipes in the book are vegetarian and vegan.
The eight chapters are captured in different share houses throughout the sunshiny inner suburbs of Brisbane, Australia. Each chapter has a distinct theme, as dictated by the culinary skills of those living in the featured house: a breakfast-spread menu; hungover brunch; a leisurely long lunch; eat it with your hands; a Mexican-inspired feast; a Mediterranean dinner party; pasta night; and comfort-food spread.
Through its clean and bright photography--all taken by Clare's own friends and roommates--The Shared Table is simultaneously luxe and sincere. It's a warm and inviting cookbook that every share house needs on their communal bookshelf.
