Hilary Knight collection. Stanley Green. First Edition. Oversized folio and 200 illustrations in black and white. ISBN: 0870001337. Well-known critical reviewer and musicologist Stanley Green presents a detailed look at the 175 new productions of the 1930s - a decade when the modern musical theater began to take shape. 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.
