    Hilary Knight collection, with his signature on front pastedown. First US Edition. 240 black and white illustrations. ISBN: 0896730182. The story of a nice, normal, hardworking genius - the man described by Gene Kelly as "one of the blessed." A celebration of the achievements of the greatest dancer the movies have ever known. Tight binding.

    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.
