The Jim Thompson Notebook features over 40 drawings and watercolours of artist Graham Byfield, who portrays the fascinating life of renowned businessman Jim Thompson, including how he revolutionised the Thai silk industry and built the iconic Jim Thompson House (now a museum). The notebook contains ruled, plain pages of high-quality paper, and has short write-ups about the Jim Thompson House and the gifted designer and entrepreneur who built it, a three-year calendar, a ribbon bookmark, and an “at a glance” page of useful facts about Bangkok.
Artist Graham Byfield spent the early years of his career as a graphic artist and creative director for advertising agencies in various parts of the world. He used these experiences as opportunities to study parochial architecture, savour landscapes and explore local cultures through his paintings. He is now a full-time artist with his own gallery in Spain, and he travels extensively to research his series of Sketchbooks.
