Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized folio and profuse illustrations in black and white and color. ISBN: 0670647756. In this volume, Eleanor McMillen Brown and her associates past and present talk freely and frankly about their design ideas and working methods. Interviews, photographs, painting, and drawings reveal how they have dealt with the tastes and eccentricities of their wealthy and celebrated clients. 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.
