Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto and profuse illustrations in full color. ISBN: 0706411358. A remarkably valuable record of the designs, fashions, and graphic art of a period which saw momentous developments in the arts. This unique collection of over 400 drawn covers includes every cover published between 1920 and 1930, and a large selection from what went before or came after. 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.
