Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized quarto and rich illustrations in black and white and color including numerous sheet music excerpts. A compilation of original music, composed by the author to accompany selected poems by William Blake and others, with sublime Art Deco illustrations by Mac Harshberger. 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.
