A childhood friend of Milton Glaser, colleague of Andy Warhol and fashion illustrator for Vogue, Jacqueline Ayer’s work was a unique addition to children’s literature in 1950-60s America.
Her picture books brought a bold vision of Thai life to the western market, using pen and pops of bright colour to document the back lanes of Bangkok. Ayer’s reference book Oriental Costume is still used by London College of Fashion today.
As well as original artworks and ephemera the exhibition will feature clothing by her label Design Thai.
