Product Description

When the renowned American businessman, Jim Thompson, disappeared on Easter Sunday 1967 in mysterious
circumstances, the legend of this extraordinarily gifted designer and entrepreneur began. During a period of twodecades, he had developed silk making from being a static village craft into a dynamic textile industry providingexquisite silks for both the Thai domestic and international markets. The house he built in Bangkok is a work of artin itself, furnished with his superb collection of Asian antiques and artifacts. Somerset Maugham was to write afterone of Thompsons enchanting dinner parties, "You have not only beautiful things, but what is rarer you havearranged them with faultless taste."This attractive book portrays the world of Jim Thompson with annotated sketches and fine watercolor paintings -exploring his life story; the house, now a museum; the history of silk; sericulture and silk making; and the companyhe established which today continues his work, producing some of the worlds finest fabrics and designs.
