Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto, pervasive black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0394428625. This book makes us see for the first time the artistry of the Hollywood studio photographers, whose portraits of Crawford, Garbo, Cooper, and the others both revolutionized photographic portraiture and, to an enormous extent, formed our vision of the great Hollywood faces. Tight binding.

About David Duncan

Sometime in the early ’50s, Hilary Knight’s drawings of naughty little girls for Mademoiselle magazine led to a meeting with author Kay Thompson (then a top nightclub performer)--and, of course, to the perpetually adored Eloise, the precocious Plaza dweller who in many ways is Knight’s alter ego. “Eloise will be celebrating her 60th birthday in 2015--not bad for a six-year-old,” says Knight. We’re honored to offer these personal pieces from Knight, who remains as stylish, outspoken, and original as the legendary little girl he brought to life.
