Why We Love This

Hilary Knight collection. First Edition. Oversized folio and 382 illustrations, including 70 in color. From Diaghilev's launching of the Ballets Russes in 1909 until his death twenty years later, he was the central figure and the motive power of one of the most extraordinary experiments in creative cross-fertilization Europe has known since the Renaissance. This biography brilliantly documents one of the great moments in modern culture. Tight binding.

About David Duncan

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.
