Hilary Knight collection. Reissue of 1943 original. Oversized folio and 64 full-page black and white plates. ISBN: 087817169X. a guide to New Mexican Catholic folk art, taking the form of both statuary and relief painting. The book provides information illustrating the santero's art and describes the traditional roles of santos in both religious and secular life, with 64 beautifully reproduced plates of examples of the form with commentary. 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.
