Viva Frida is a lookbook of street art around the world that pays tribute to the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. The front, back, and spine were constructed out of plexiglass using hinges to piece them together. The cover, copy and chapter pages are printed in red with green printed over only allowing the green to be fully legible with a red overlay. The red overlay reveals images and switches the copy from English (red) to Spanish (green). This direction allows readers to see the duality of Frida's legacy. The plexiglass and long shape were constructed similarly to a portrait frame, her portraits were what she was known for.
