American artist Nancy Chandler moved to Thailand in 1969 and published the first
edition of her detailed map of Bangkok in 1974 as an illustration for the American
Women's Club magazine. It proved so popular with not just members but the
greater expatriate community as well th...read moreat Nancy was soon pressured into
publishing it independently.
Her map of Chiang Mai followed in 1980, when the magazine sent Nancy north to
illustrate a story on the city shortly after she had been captivated by it on a holiday
with her young children.
Her keen sense of adventure and humor eventually resulted in an extensive range
of greeting cards and gifts, each of which celebrates and enhances the experience
of Thailand and things Thai.
Nancy passed away in her home town of Mill Valley, California, in 2015, but her
eldest daughter and business partner Nima carries on the business.
