Sketchbook from Southern France by Sara Midda
After looking at The Diary of Frida Kahlo, I realised I enjoyed the fact the publication itself was made as a replica of her sketchbook so that the reader felt as though they were looking through the physical object itself. Asides from the illustrative use of different media, I really enjoyed the way her sketchbook’s front cover was pictured in the book, almost as if the physical object had been put face down on a scanner. It reminded me of the very brief examples in Sara Midda’s Sketchbook From Southern France whereby actual objects, such as bits of ribbon and different paper types stuck in have been photographed. I also really liked the very careful composition of illustrations in her sketchbook which is more organised compared to The Diary of Frida Kahlo which contains more erratic notes.
